If you saw this lantern soaring in the sky, you would almost have to call the authorities because there's no way that it wouldn't be an alien. Villagers in Qionghai in China just unleashed one of the greatest homemade lanterns that looks so much like a UFO, it's scary.

Taking a week to build, the lantern was roughly 40 meters in diameter and used 62 small lanterns to get itself off the ground. The photos reveal a bunch of people lighting several lanterns at once to send the massive lantern in the air.

The UFO-style lantern apparently lasted in the air for around five minutes and got as high as 30 meters in the air (around 98 feet). Thousands of people watched the release of the monster lantern, and judging from the pictures, it was definitely something to see.
