One of the largest networks of these groups is the UFO Research Association. This is an umbrella group that encompasses numerous branches throughout China including the one in Kunming, headed by retired physics professor Zhang Yifang who has recently received publicity. Another member is Wang Sichao who is also involved in the Purple Mountain Astronomical Observatory, in Nanjing, where a UFO was recently filmed during the recent solar eclipse.
One UFO sighting that the many scientists active within the UFO Research Association are seriously investigating occurred in the town of Nianyang, Sichuan Province. On July 20 of this year at 7 PM numerous members of the public witnessed a classic ‘Walnut’ or ‘Dumpling UFO. A dozen witnesses called the local paper and one witness got a series of photos of the hovering UFO. Mr. Wang noticed it morphing in shape before fading. Investigators are leaning towards declaring this event is genuinely anomalous.

Scientists at the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing are reported to have confirmed that they filmed a UFO during the eclipse for 40 minutes.
The Observatory is famous for discovering of 147 asteroids. They say that they will spend the next 12 months studying the footage before drawing any conclusions. The director of the observatory, Ji Hai-sheng, told sina.com that scientists would not be speculating publicly on the nature of what was captured on film until it had been properly studied. He added:”‘Purple Mountain Observatory and Chinese Academy of Sciences said that during the July 22, 2009, total solar eclipse observation, China had discovered near the sun, by observing staff, an unidentified object, it’s physical nature remains to be further studied. “Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results and this will take at least one year’s time to finalize.”
