Hundreds of witnesses reported seeing an entire block of skyscrapers floating high up in the clouds.
Mysterious City Appears In Sky Above China
The breathtaking spectacle, which appeared above China’s Jiangxi and Foshan regions, looked like some sort of futuristic cityscape with rows of dark-colored buildings obscured by an eerie haze.
The mirage lasted only a few minutes before dissipating but it was there long enough to have captured the imagination of both the public and the media.
The most likely explanation for the phenomenon is that it was a type of mirage known as a ’Fata Morgana’ which can occur under a specific combination of environmental conditions.
