According to reports, thousands of people spotted a giant ‘floating city over the city of Foshan, Guangdong in China. The mysterious ‘alien city’ as it has been called on social networks was photographed by shocked residents on October 7, 2015. In the streets of Foshan, people watched in amazement as a giant city appeared out of nowhere.
According to media reports, thousands of people stood still, watching the ‘ghostly city’ in what has been the second apparition of a ‘flying city’ in China. The mysterious ‘city’ was reported to have giant skyscrapers and other smaller buildings which are ‘clearly’ visible in the image according to social network users.
The apparition lasted only a few minutes before it disappeared, UFO Sightings Hotspot reports.
According to writings by Mysterious Universe, only a couple of days after the city of Foshan almost came to a standstill as thousands of people watched the mysterious city appear in the sky, a similar phenomenon was reported in the province of Jiangxi, China, where people reported a mysterious city floating in the sky.
Back in 2011, a colossal structures which clearly resembled a giant city was spotted over the city of Huangshan in the southern Anhui in China.
The sighting of the giant city over Huangshan was remarkable since several people managed to photograph the anomalous phenomenon as they watched in amazement. In the images, one can clearly see buildings and trees.
But people all over the world seem to have similar reports. According to hundreds of residents of the small border town of Dulali in Darazo, Nigeria, a large “flying city” came down from heaven in 2011, when people in China also reported a similar sighting.
According to one of the witnesses, Saidu Meshai Dulali who worked in the local tea shop, he saw the light in the sky after the Morning Prayer at the local mosque while preparing to begin daily work. Saidu and hundreds of other residents, including the imam of the local mosque, Mallam Shehu Liman, saw the bright light in the sky that was moving towards the village. As it came closer, you could see buildings and towers.
“The giant floating city” appeared out of nowhere, the entire city was surrounded by a thin cloud, it flew very close to the ground, through these “clouds” witness’ claimed to have seen beautiful large buildings, towers and the sound of machines originating from the city.
What if… it was all an optical illusion? Well it’s very likely that all of the above ‘sightings’ were an optical illusion actually.
Fata Morgana you say?
A Fata Morgana is a form of mirage that can be seen on land or at sea, in polar regions but also in the desert. This type of optical illusion is Mother nature’s way of saying: It’s magic. A Fata Morgana mirage can involve almost any kind of distant object, including boats, islands, houses, flying pigs and why not… huge flying cities.
Fata Morgana occurs because rays of light are bent when they pass through air layers of different temperatures in a steep thermal inversion where an atmospheric duct has formed.
