As quoted in Wonders In The Sky - Unexplained Aerial Objects From Antiquity To Modern Times - and Their Impact on Human Culture, History, and Beliefs - Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck
A red, white, yellow and blue "star" flew over a funeral, circling the village for a long time. The villagers were presenting their condolences to the family of Yuan Yingta, a minister of war under the Ming dynasty who had sacrificed himself on the battlefield while resisting the Man army. Suddenly a luminous object like a star, red, white, yellow and blue in color, flew over the funeral procession. This brilliant thing did not touch the ground, but it flew around the village for a long time, then rose up in the sky again. Its light was visible five kilometers away.
