Paranormal researcher Scott C Waring uncovered footage of mysterious UFO lights that appeared in the skies over China. These bright lights, possibly from multiple unidentified flying objects, hovered in the night skies, and not only appeared in the skies of Beijing, but also in other regions of the country. “The lights caught the attention of most of Beijing, but it was seen by people that were 100 km away! That means the UFOs went to many locations, not just over Beijing. The light is lumpy and contained. That means its not a spotlight from the ground.
