It seems that Chinese residents have sighted UFOs after several mysterious lights were seen flashing in the sky of Chongqing.

According to reports, the strange bright dots appear to move in a line with one disappearing and another one emerging in front of it.

The eerie scenes from Wednesday have been captured in videos, which are trending on Chinese social media platforms.

While the rumours of extra-terrestrial activities were circulating among Chinese web users, a leading UFO expert claimed that the footage could be of 'a rocket zooming into the atmosphere'. 

The series of baffling videos were posted yesterday on Weibo, a Twitter-like social media platform in China which showed several orange-red lights following each other in a linear motion.

Some web users claimed the scene looked like a cell splitting in the sky, whilst others said aliens were visiting China.

Weibo user 'wangshuashuadishua' said the phenomenon resembled 'a person making smoke rings while walking'; while 'BIM' gushed 'the aliens finally made their visit to China, they used to go to America only'.

There were also web users claiming to have seen the same mysterious pattern appearing above other cities, including Shanghai in east China and Xinjiang Autonomous Region in north-west China.

Chinese authorities are yet to comment on the matter.
