Numerous UFO videos have been doing rounds over the internet, portraying the Great Wall of China as a popular place for UFO sightings, but many of them have turned out to be fake.

Veteran forensic UFO investigator Scott Brando, who had shed light on many fake images and videos of UFO sightings via his site ufoofinterest.org, was quoted by the Express as saying that "the object in the image may not be as exciting as it seems, and certainly not of extraterrestrial origin."

He also said: "It is a blurfo. In this case it's most likely an insect."

A "blurfo" is defined as any blurred bird or insect captured by camera and looks similar to the shape of a flying saucer or a UFO.
