外文标题：Indian army mistook planets for Chinese spy drones: Report
NEW DELHI: The Indian army reportedly spent six months watching “Chinese spy drones” violating its air space, only to find out they were actually Jupiter and Venus, BBC News reported on Friday.
Tensions have been high in the disputed Himalayan border area between the two nations in recent years, with India frequently accusing its neighbour of making incursions onto its territory.
According to the Calcutta-based Telegraph, Indian troops had documented 329 sightings of unidentified objects over a lake in the border region between last August and February.
The newspaper quoted military sources as saying the objects violated the Line of Actual Control (LAC) 155 times.
The army called the Indian Institute of Astrophysics to identify the objects. “Our task was to determine whether these unidentified objects were celestial or terrestrial,” astronomer Tushar Prabhu told the paper.
Only once the objects’ movements were noted in relation to the stars were they identified as planets.
This is utterly ridiculous!!! Even an amateur astronomer with naked eye can point out planets!!
Oh India. How can we ever repay you for the countless moments of laughter you provide us?
We are a superpower :D
Thanks God, they did not try to shoot them. LOL
Indian obsession with China should end. India should be vigilant but not obsessive.
This sounds so ridiculous.
Addressed to B
No but they were hallucinating, that’s for sure!
Shining India, more like Blimey India. What a joke of an army.
In other news India successfully launched its indigenous Weather Satellite INSAT 3D into space while Pakistan is the begging the United states for the blue prints of the drone, its national bird.
@Anshuman Tripathy: but seriously planets for drones?? wonder what you launched your “satellites” off to!
Relax man. You can accept your mistake. We Pakistanis may have the habit of shooting ourselves in the foot. We may be cunning, mean and self defeating. But at least we’re not dumb. Hahahahahaha. Hillarious.
And in another news india’s ‘indigenous weather satellite INSAT 3D’ mistakes rain drops for incoming inter continental cruise missiles.
@Anshuman Tripathy: Say whatever you want buddy – there’s really no respite from this. Planets for drones hahaha
@Anshuman Tripathy: Will that “indigenous Weather Satellite” bring food for more than 40 crore living below poverty lines in India? Just wondering. I hope its purpose is to monitor how many crores are still deprived of as basic facility as tiolet ;)
Two countries – In one drones enter at will and no one bothers and the other where even planets are taken as drones. The two extremes zero and infinity. And they amount to same.
@Tony Singh: Take Drones as planets or, planets as drones, its ridiculously shameful.
The Indian Army wins hands down. They spent six months monitoring these ‘Chinese spy drones’…..six months!!! hahahahaahahaaa
This is a fake report::Indian army mistook planets for Chinese spy drones: Report..
I can’t accept it & has not been reported anywhere in the Indian media. We Indians are dominating scientific research & technology all across the world.
All armies are alike.
You should be ashamed of your army ridiculousness. And stop blaming others that’s what you people always do.
wahahahah..6months buhahahahahaha..SIX MONTHS hahahahaha…OMG hahahahaha
Why would anyone want to spy on the world's tech support call center?
They are collecting all the phone data. Duh... lol.
Lets outsource more of our American Jobs to these people...
Heck, that ain't nothing. The aliens are arguing over whether there's intelligent life on this planet.
Why would India's army admit this? BS.
Apparently they had no one to call for tech support.
All lines were busy..
They would also think that Saturn is a UFO !!!
What I find scary is that the same country whose military can't tell the difference between spy drones and planets is also a country with it's finger on a nuclear trigger.
hahaha....and these people have weapons!!
Ummmm, they don't use radar to track objects over their country???
And let's not forget folks, this is a nuclear state that we are talking about!
The black sheep of the family
between china and india? ya know, between those two very countries, they lay claim to half da world's population? me still just hope they don't conspire to have their citizens jump at da same time to tilt our earth one day....
aish... china still got more people... and surely that must mean something, eh...
What if they all jump off a cliff into the ocean?
People are their biggest resources. Wait until the people are able to be the consumers we are.Then they will start to encounter the same problems we have.
