Video: A Floating City Appears Above China

Hundreds of people have reportedly witnessed a “city” appear in the skies above China, first on October 7 over Foshan in the Guangdong province, then later in Jiangxi.

The above video briefly shows the peculiar phenomenon – strange dark pillars like skyscrapers materialized in the clouds, then vanished a few minutes later.

Another video, by Paranormal Crucible, proposes a few interesting theories. One is that the “city” is the result of Project Blue Beam, an alleged conspiracy involving NASA and the use of holographic technology to stage either the Second Coming or an alien invasion. Or, they say, it could be a tear in time and space, momentarily revealing a city in a parallel universe.

One, more likely, possibility is that this is a Fata Morgana, a superior mirage. Interesting bit of info from Wikipedia: Fata Morgana “is the Italian name for the Arthurian sorceress Morgan le Fay, from a belief that these mirages, often seen in the Strait of Messina, were fairy castles in the air or false land created by her witchcraft to lure sailors to their death.”

Personally, I’m more inclined to believe that Columbia has adjusted its route and visited China. I mean, where else did this come from?

  1. I really don’t know what to think, is so interesting and I think scary to see that above you D:
    I would say just clouds but…black clouds with that form? It is known that hologhapic technology is used by helicopters but this is another level

  2. This is weird, almost two years ago my husband and I were on vacation in Troncones, Mexico, a small beach town. There is a shipping lane visible on clear days right on the horizon, so it wasn’t unusual to see large ships passing. However one afternoon as I scanned the horizon a larger than normal “ship” appeared. I asked my husband what the **** is that? We used binoculars to watch what seemed to be an floating island with hills and tall buildings move across the horizon until it simply faded out of sight in the distance. I later googled everything I could think of to explain what we clearly saw, to no avail. It was similar to the picture above, with less buildings and more hills and trees and sitting just above the water line. Unlike the picture however the skies were cloudless. It was mid to late afternoon. (We weren’t smokin’ anything funny!)

    So, if this was mirage, it was an amazing one. (And where is the phone/camera when you really need it — the binoculars were great — but no pictures.) It was not fuzzy or blurred.

  3. Wow, the walls between parallel worlds are slowly breached. What kind of world will this be if this parallel worlds collide inside a single world and live on as one?
