A floating city in China may be a parallel universe after thousands of residents in two areas reported seeing a huge skyline in the clouds. Onlookers, some who are said to have taken photos of the bizarre event, were said to be mesmerized as a towering city of sky scrapers appeared from the clouds, according to The Christian Science Monitor
First thousands reportedly saw a ghostly alien skyline above Foshan in the Guangdong province of China. A few days later people in the province of Jiangxi also reported seeing a similar floating city.
Weather experts have explained the phenomena as natural mirage, an optical illusion called Fata Morgana.Fata Morgana 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.
But the floating city in China is a parallel universe mystery to thousands and now the conspiracy theorists have gone into over drive. There were previous reports of a similar sighting in the country in 2011.
“The footage captured by a local resident appears to show a huge city floating in the clouds,” one caption said with a photo. “The apparition, which was witnessed by hundreds of shocked residents, only lasted a few minutes before completely disappearing.”
Some experts speculated it could be “the result of a project blue beam test.” Project Blue Beam is a prolific conspiracy theory which believes NASA will one day simulate an alien invasion of Earth or second coming of Christ through holograms.
Serge Monast, a conspiracist from Quebecois, first predicted in the 1980s it would happen by 1983, 1996 and then 2000.
One online poster noted: “Notice the group of buildings is repeated three times? If it isn’t someone making it on their computer, it seriously could be project blue beam. … Or a temporal vortex, a possible parallel universe material briefly into our own reality.”
“It is also possible, considering China’s technological achievements that a top secret holographic technology was tested over a heavily populated area in an effort to gauge the public reaction.”
Scientists are the first to admit that, given the vastness of the cosmos, it makes perfect sense to believe that there are alien life forms somewhere out there, just waiting to be discovered.
As for these bizarre apparitions in China, however, they doubt that what people saw was, in fact, a floating city, let alone one populated by aliens. Rather, they think it was all an illusion.
So what do you think about the floating city in China? Is it a parallel universe?
