Mysterious Chinese Video Appears to Capture “Dragon” Circling Clouds

A widely unnoticed video uploaded to YouTube in September of last year, presumably from a cell phone camera, shows a bizarre lightshow taking place in the sky. Apparently captured somewhere in China, the grainy footage displays what looks like an illuminated, worm-like body shifting and circling through the clouds.

While the uploader “helangkawi” has left few clues as to where it was taken, or what it could be, there are some who claim it’s a UFO of extraterrestrial origin, others that it’s a simply a projection on the sky, and even some, including the uploader, are referring to it as a “dragon”.

Personally, I think it kind of looks like the awesome portal above Dana Barrett’s apartment (“Spook Central”) in Ghostbusters. Time to choose the form of the destructor.

Any guesses?

I’m suspecting one of two things. 1. magnetic phenomena similar to the aurora borealis. 2.Someone with a high output projector.

Although, it would be shweet if it was a dragon.

Looks interesting, but it may have been lights being projected onto the clouds. Or maybe I watched too much Scooby-Doo as a kid

It’s gotta be projected, what’s the red glow top right?
