The residents of Foshan in
were astonished a few days ago to look up and see a strange sight in the sky. A
city appeared thousands of feet above them. The row of skyscrapers loomed over
the edge of a cloud floating over Foshan. Thousands of people witnessed it and,
naturally nowadays, some filmed it. The apparition was only visible for a few
minutes then it vanished. This is not the first time China
has experienced this kind of mysterious vision. In 2011 an unknown urban
landscape appeared in the mist-covered city of Huangshan
on the river Xin'an, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsMmef04qGs.
Scientists have commented that this is a fata
morgana, an impressive form of mirage in which very distant objects can be
seen in different places due to the refraction of light rays under certain atmospheric
conditions, but is it? If so then this must be a real city somewhere a long way
off; has anybody identified the skyscrapers in the image? There are other
examples of weird country being seen in the sky that are specifically different
from any known earth landscape. In fact one such incident was reported to the
paranormal investigator Steve Mera. In 1943 a sailor on board a Royal Navy ship
fighting in World War II saw something which is remarkably similar to what has
been reported more recently in China.
He and his shipmates were sailing near Malta
when they saw a huge cityscape appear in bank of clouds which they watched for
over three hours. He describes it as very beautiful, full of elegant buildings,
roads, parkland and people moving about. The ship was a long way out at sea and
no land was in sight; Steve believes that this was a fata morgana. However the witnesses did not recognize the place
they were seeing and even describe it as old-fashioned, with a mixture of the
familiar and the bizarre, see: http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/1176591-strange-happenings.
Are these phenomena actually glimpses into physical domains beyond our own? Not
extraterrestrial, but truly otherworldly? This topic forms a common theme in
fiction, like Philip Pullman's enthralling His
Dark Materials trilogy, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/gateway-to-parallel-universe.html.
Could there be some reality behind it? Even mainstream scientists are taking
the idea of parallel universes seriously; perhaps these universes not only
exist, but sometimes merge briefly with our own. I doubt that this was a test
of Project Blue Beam, if such an enterprise exists. The experimenters would be
foolish to project their practice image over a populated area where lots of
people could see it and maybe work out what was going on. They'd try it out in
a remote and uninhabited region of the world. Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3276576/Is-evidence-parallel-universe-Sightings-floating-city-China-simply-optical-illusion-say-scientists.html.
A report of a "flying city" has also come from an isolated area of Africa;
in this case the experience has a distinct UFO-like element to it, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/city-in-sky.html.
Perhaps this is connected to the outbreaks of light spirals in the sky during
recent years, like the Norwegian spiral. Maybe there's a connection with the
recent new experiments with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, see background
