‘Moon’ falls to earth and rampages through Chinese town
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a blooming great balloon rolling towards you at speed.
This must have crossed the minds of a few people in Fuzhou, eastern China, on Wednesday as a huge moon balloon was knocked free from its restraints by an approaching typhoon.

The orb, which formed part of celebrations for the mid-autumn moon festival, rolled around the streets of Fuzhou covering cars and people. Luckily there have been no injuries.
Twitter, in its usual style, reacted with glee at the lunar landing.
OMG! That runaway moon-balloon smushing people is high-larious!

I think Giant Moon Balloon Rampage could be the next Sharknado. Especially if it eats people and things as it rolls over them & gets bigger

Stay safe out there, kids. You never know when a massive balloon is going to wreak havoc in your town.
