Residents of Guangdong province, China, have claimed to have seen a floating city in the sky after a mirage in the shape of a cityscape appeared in the clouds over Jiangxi and Foshan. Parts of the city came almost to a standstill as people stood in the streets, looking up at the mysterious “floating city” in the sky. The apparition lasted only a few minutes before it disappeared.
YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible speculated it could be “the result of a Project Blue Beam test” – a popular conspiracy theory which believes NASA will one day simulate an alien invasion of Earth or second coming of Christ through holograms.

However, weather experts explained the phenomena as natural mirage, an optical illusion called “Fata Morgana” that can be seen on land or sea and involves the optical distortion and inversion of distant objects such as boats, which can appears as skyscrapers because the images become stacked, when rays of light bend as they pass through air of different temperatures such as in a heat haze.
Despite the scientific explanation, the spooky sighting has Twitter users excited.
