Conspiracy theories have set the internet abuzz after residents of two Chinese cities witnessed a ‘floating city’ appearing in the sky.
The bizarre event was captured on film and shows what appeared to be a large cityscape of dark skyscrapers floating in the clouds.
After being aired on Chinese news channels and later uploaded to YouTube, the incredible footage has attracted a number of other conspiracy theorists offering an explanation.

One of the more common theories is the belief the illusion was the result of ‘Project Blue Beam’ — a secret NASA project in which the space agency will try to start a New World Order through holograms.
One commenter wrote: “Clearly this was an offshoot of project Bluebeam by the Chinese Government in conjunction with the US air force.”
Another theory suggests the event was not designed here on Earth; rather it was the work of aliens from another dimension.
“I believe it’s the work of the aliens. They probably teleported a giant city or maybe reflected it from their own dimension,” wrote one user.
While these supernatural explanations are enticing, scientists have been quick to dismiss the occurrence as a Fata Morgana — a mirage caused when light passes through at different temperatures.
