Incredible floating city appears above China

Hundreds of witnesses reported seeing an entire block of skyscrapers floating high up in the clouds.
The breathtaking spectacle, which appeared above China's Jiangxi and Foshan regions, looked like some sort of futuristic cityscape with rows of dark-colored buildings obscured by an eerie haze.

The mirage lasted only a few minutes before dissipating but it was there long enough to have captured the imagination of both the public and the media.

The most likely explanation for the phenomenon is that it was a type of mirage known as a 'Fata Morgana' which can occur under a specific combination of environmental conditions.

Wish i had a camera when me and my best friend saw a whale cloud swimming over the southen alps. What was even more amazing was under the flipper part was a smaller baby whale cloud swimming along side. Truly we have a beautiful planet folks.

So what is your scientific theory as to the causation of these events? we don't need one, since by now it seems to be known what it actually was. Just in case you missed the link in alibongos post (#63), here it is again, give it a read: http://aukiman.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/huangshan-city-mirage-all-down-to-bad.html

Hoax. As has been explained. I agree with the hoax determination, yet it appears that you missed the point of my question which you quoted. My question was in regards to the statement posted This is not a mirage, it is a real city surrounded by fog: According to the source cited by "All the buildings in the footage are real buildings, not visions, mirages or illusions, they actually physically stand exactly where they were filmed. The only thing out of the ordinary here is they are surrounded by floodwater and mist." Hence the reason the 2011 video appears to be a city in the clouds. Yet a 'Fa... [More]

029b10, if you are going to try to participate, please read the thread.. The OP is about ONE event that is a HOAX. OK? During further conversations from other posters, ANOTHER event (that was a REAL happening and was simply fog around the base of buildings) was raised. That second (earlier) event wasn't a hoax, although some folks tried to make out it was something extraordinary. So, two events - one a hoax that never happened (except in someone's computer), one a real event that was misreported. And neither of them involved religious beliefs or symbolism. Do you understand?
