I just came across this article a few minutes ago, which says that MSN in Malaysia has reported a UFO sighting above a beach resort.  Some more searching turned up an article containing this picture you see on the right, which was supposedly taken by a witness near the resort.

It caught my attention because I remembered reading about the UFO sighting that shut down the Xiaoshan Airport in China a few weeks ago, and then there was a second sighting last week.  The media has speculated that there may have been a military connection, and conspiracy theories abound, but it has me wondering what's really going on over there with these recent sightings.  Is this real?  Is it some sort of elaborate attempt to increase tourism?  Or maybe it's evidence that other life forms also experience really intense cravings for Chinese food?
