On Monday night in Shanghai, residents gathered around puzzled by the colored lights flying in the sky. The UFO-like sight turned out to be kites equipped with LED lights.

"I feel curious about the object. I don't know what it is. It can't move like a plane and can change color into green and red alternatively."

The kites are pretty large, measuring nearly six feet wide, with as many as 280 LED lights attached. The lights flash in succession forming different patterns and shapes. The large one is said to be worth around three to five hundred dollars.

These bright kites are much easier to spot than elusive stars at night.
