'UFO' Photographed From Plane Window (PICTURE)

A passenger has photographed what appears to be a UFO from the window of an aeroplane.

The disc-shaped object is seen above the clouds and was pictured during a flight from Hong Kong to southwest China's Kunming City last week.

The image was passed to Rex Features by Larry Siu, who says it was taken by an unnamed friend.

He added: "He said many passengers saw it and took pictures. Maybe aliens fly here to pick up earth man."

The image was posted on an Unexplained Mysteries forum, with posters speculating as to its veracity, and some claiming it's er, a frisbee.
