UFO on Indo-China Border Mystery Solved
By Jenalyn Villamarin | November 13, 2012 3:29 PM EST
The para-military forces securing the border with China informed the central government about some spotted orange-yellow luminous flying objects on the horizon over Pangong Lake in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir close to China's Line of Control (LoC) which is located 160km from the town of Leh. A couple of unnamed news agencies reported that the Leh-based 14-Corps was warned by the Indian Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) who also spotted the light-emitting body to its Udhampur-based Northern Command prompting a thorough monitoring of the flying object.
The Indian Army, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) and National Technical Research Organization (NTRO) arrived at the Himalayan town of Leh and conducted a detailed study in consultation with the experts of the Indian Air Force. The IAF's radars were unable to detect any signal due to the UFOs over the lake where one-third of which is in India while the rest is under the control of China.
Astronomers from the Ladakh-based Indian Astronomical Observatory examined the phenomenon of the glowing object which disappeared in 12-18 minutes. Also, the Border patrolling boat claimed that no crash happened since the luminous object simply vanished without a trace. These objects could possibly be a Chinese publicity stunt launch of their lanterns with the ability to attain a height between 500-2000 meters to measure the defense readiness of the Indian forces guarding the cold and hostile terrain along the Line of Actual Control (LAC)."Something is clearly wrong, if our combined scientific resources can't explain the phenomena," a senior Army official in Delhi said in the India Today report.
In 2010, United Kingdom authorities warned the people not to fly Chinese lanterns within five miles off the airport and one mile of the coastal line. Also, several European countries have already prohibited the manufacturing of Chinese lanterns which are traditionally constructed from oiled rice paper on a bamboo frame containing a fuel cell composed of a waxy flammable material.
