Mistaking planets for drones

The jawans in the border sadly mistook a few harmless planets [or harmful, as the case may apply] to be Chinese drones.

Sad, such negative publicity.

" Only once the objects' movements were noted in relation to the stars were they identified as planets. The Telegraph suggests the sentry ought to be forgiven, with planets appearing brighter as a result of the different atmosphere at altitude and the increased use of surveillance drones."

I read in a site that luckily India doesnt have the capability to shoot down such high altitude objects. Even worse.
