The Amazing Floating City

Updated on June 22, 2011

Another Dimension?

Floating City

Pedestrians in Huangshan City, China were shocked to see a “City” floating above the sea.

A video of this event appeared on the British news agency ITN.

The clarity is amazing and individual trees and buildings can clearly be seen.

Some people say that this is an optical illusion, similar to a mirage.

When currents of cold air and currents of hot air collide, it is possible for images, in surprising clarity, to be carried great distances. These phenomena are called Fata Morgana and have been given as the explanation for how ancient seafarers claim to have seen flying ships.

Another theory that has been put forward is that it is a test, for a new technology that is being developed, the ability, to show holograms to a mass of people. It is speculated that tests like this would have to be performed un-announced, in order to get the best results.

A third theory is that perhaps two Worlds, of different dimensions, are joining.

The Fata Morgana theory has been rejected by most, as the image is to sharp and in depth. Besides, the image resembles no known City.

The second theory seems unlikely, as who would want to create holograms to disillusion the masses and for what purpose?

As incredible as it may seem, that leaves the third theory. Could Worlds be merging?

The thought of two Worlds merging may sound unbelievable but how unbelievable will a forth theory for this event, witnessed by dozens and caught on film, sound, if it is found?

      Just a bad translation of the chinese narration with the original video. You see real buildings. They just wanted to show these seem to float on the mist.
