In October 2015, a group of hovering buildings was reportedly seen and recorded. This caused theories ranging from a parallel universe portal to an alien invasion. However, it was later determined to be a natural mirage called a Fata Morgana.

In 2010, residents of Chongqing reported seeing a giant floating city in the clouds that lasted for several minutes before disappearing. Many witnesses captured footage of the event and shared it online. Speculation about what could have caused such a phenomenon continues today.

In 2011, another strange sighting was reported in the city of Huangshan, where witnesses reported seeing a group of glowing, UFO-like objects floating in the sky for several hours. This event was also captured on video and quickly became viral, leaving many people baffled by what they had witnessed.
