Kunming UFO
- An Unknown Falling meteOroid? Or an Unidentified Flying cOmet?

12 January 2008
 

The shot was taken by a Chinese netizen net named “20231” at 7:40am on 10 January in Hunming, Yunnan Province.

According to the armature photographer, the Unidentified Falling Object was frozen in its earth-crashing motion for about 5 minutes before fading into the background glowing in the soft light of the rising sun.

Some online viewers of the post advised that it could be a bird scarer used by the airport near the scene, but a staff working at the airport rejected this suggestion, affirming that the scarers are normally 40 to 60 metres from the ground which is impossible to be detected off the premises.

Shanghai Fog
- you Fight your way through Or Give up

For nearly a week, shanghai has been shrouded in thick fogs, that affected not only flights, ships, but the vehicles in highways north to Nanjing and south to Hangzhou.

During the early morning when the fog was thickest, the visibility is said to be less than 100 metres.

In this most industrialised and developed city of China, the air quality was never good, but it gets even worse now. In some parts of the great metropolitan, the colour of the sky has evolved form a traditional dull grey to a newly acquired exciting orange.

What the Sky Tells Us
仰望星空的侦探

A Private Detective

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his friend awake. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Reckoned that Holmes wanted to test his observation skills, Watson gave the question a lengthy contemplation before answering, "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I find that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I think the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I see that God is great and we are insignificant. Meteorologically, I believe we will have another sunny day. Now, what does it tell you?"

Holmes was silent for a second, then spoke frigidly, "It tells me someone has stolen our tent."

话说一日歇洛克福尔摩斯和华生郊外野营,酒足饭饱之余在帐中躺下呼呼,一觉醒来只见月已西斜,星斗满天。福尔摩斯推醒仍在呼呼的华生说:“你能不能告诉我,当你仰望星空之际,你看到了什么?”

华生睡意朦胧,揉一揉眼睛。“俺看见了几千几万颗星星啦。”

福尔摩斯又问:“那些星星告诉你什么?”

华生意识到福尔摩斯又要考他,于是打起几千几万分精神,非常认真地回:“从天文学的角度看,他们告诉我宇宙中有数百万个银河系,有数千万颗行星。从占星术的角度看,他们告诉我土星正行经狮子座。从天象学的角度看,现在大约是凌晨三点一刻。从宗教学的角度看,他们告诉我上帝是伟大的人类是渺小的。从气象学的角度看,俺估摸着回头又是个大晴天。福兄,不知道他们告诉了你些什么,请教了。"

福尔摩斯沉默了一秒钟,冷冷地回:“我看到有人把我们的帐篷偷了。”
