Unexpected guests apparently have paid a visit to Hangzhou. The city,known as the“Paradise on Earth,”may have attracted the attention of celestial visitors.

At around eight o'clock in the evening, an unidentified flying object was spotted hovering the sky above Hangzhou's Xiaoshan airport. In the next hour, the airport was shut down.

Airport Official, said, "We've received orders to shut down the airport until the sky is cleared."

As a result, outgoing flights were grounded and incoming flights were diverted to nearby Ningbo and Wuxi. Normal airport operations resumed nearly two hours later

Residents near the airport have taken two photos of the object. One in daylight shows a clear comet-like tail and another taken at night features a glowing object emitting golden light.

Aviation authorities are still investigating the phenomenon and no further details have been released.
