A strange occurrence has been captured on camera in China.
Thousands of Chinese citizens in areas of Foshan and Jiangxi noticed a mysterious city floating in the clouds for a couple of minutes before completely disappearing from sight. The skyline appeared to have a clear cityscape, with towering skyscrapers - a sight that bewildered many.
A resident managed to capture the anomaly on camera. The video, with over 4.1 million views on YouTube, was posted on October 13 and has caused quite a stir on social media. While some suggest the apparition proves the existence of a parallel universe, others contend that it was the result of a "project blue beam test" - a conspiracy theory that claims NASA is attempting to implement a New Age religion.
"It is possible, considering China's technological achievements that a top secret holographic technology was tested over a heavily populated city in an effort to gauge the general public's reaction," says Paranormal Crucible, the YouTube channel that uploaded the video.
The most likely reason for the apparition however seems to be that it was a phenomenon called Fata Morgana, a mirage consisting of multiple images, such as cliffs and buildings, that are distorted and magnified to resemble elaborate castles. In simple words it is a kind of illusion and has been seen in other parts of the world as well.
