Is this evidence of a parallel universe? Sightings of a 'floating city' in China are simply an optical illusion, say scientists

Thousands of people in China claim they have witnessed a “floating city” in the sky. Citizens of Jiangxi and Foshan were shocked when they saw what they thought to be soaring sky scrapers appearing from the clouds. Although many believed they had seen a parallel universes, weather researchers say the occurrence was down to an optical illusion identified as a Fata Morgana. A Fata Morgana is a kind of mirage that interfere with distance objects, and can be can be seen on land or sea. It's triggered when the sun’s heat interfere the atmosphere above the land or oceans, which generates a gradient of temperatures. The air near to the surface is comparatively cool and above that, there are layers of warmer air. When light hits a border between two layers that are different temperatures – and as a consequence different thicknesses – it twists and travels at a different angle.

Our brain assumes that light travels in a straight routes, so when it curves, we reflect the object is where it would be if the light's path runs straight. In this situation, light mirrored from the skyscrapers is curved downward as it passes through the cooler, denser air. Since the brain puts the object where it would be if the light journeyed a straight path, the distant skyscrapers seem higher than they essentially are. In spite of the simple clarification, the most recent sightings have got conspiracy theorists thrilled. A YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible said in a video story: “The footage captured by a local resident appears to show a huge city floating in the clouds. The apparition, which was witnessed by hundreds of shocked residents, only lasted a few minutes before completely disappearing. The channel speculated it could be 'the result of a project blue beam test.”
Project Blue Beam is a conspiracy notion which claims NASA will one day fake an alien invasion of Earth or second coming of Christ through holograms.

Serge Monast, a conspiracist from Quebecois, first forecast in the 1980s it would take place 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.'

The Paranormal Crucible video added: “But added: '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.”
