      The usually staid state media in Shanghai carried reports yesterday that an
      unidentified flying object had been sighted in the city.
      In a front-page story, with colour photographs of an object resembling a
      meteor, the Wenhui Daily said the UFO was spotted over western Shanghai on
      Thursday afternoon.

      The paper said one of its reporters dashed to the 43rd floor of a building
      after receiving a call from a reader about the sighting. The reporter
      claimed he saw an illuminated object which remained stationary in the sky
      for about 10 minutes before it disappeared.

      Two Shanghai television channels broadcast footage of an object darting
      through the sky with a flaming orange tail, saying nearly 100 people saw it.

      A former researcher at the Shanghai Observatory, Professor Jiang Xiaoyuan,
      was among the witnesses but he could not offer any explanation.

      The UFO hovered over Shanghai for 1.5 hours, reports said.

      The city's aviation bureau and Hongqiao airport said their radar did not
      detect anything.

      The Shanghai Daily also reported the incident in a story headlined "UFO
      darts across the city's skyline".

      The paper ran its story on the same page as an advertisement for the X-Files
      movie, which is based on the television series about two American Federal
      Bureau of Investigation agents who probe unexplained phenomena.

      The paper's Web site also listed incidents of UFO reports from different
      parts of the mainland throughout the year.
