Most UFO sightings can be chalked up to active imaginations and a desire to believe we are not alone on Planet Earth.
So when witnesses noticed ‘a mirage’ they described as a ‘floating alien city’ over the Yueyang in China they could be forgiven for thinking there was no reasoned or scientific explanation for the unusual and eerie-looking masses.
Amazingly, they could have been wrong.
The Chinese city of Yueyang is home to over a million residents.
Of the hawk-eyed among them, some people noticed huge skyscrapers appeared to be jutting out of clouds as they loomed ominously over the city, capturing the strange sight on camera.
In the furore, many jumped to the conclusion that the mass had mysteriously descended from the sky, prompting conspiracy theorists to ruminate that the shapes were in fact airborne alien spaceships entering Earth’s atmosphere.
This is not the first time a ‘floating alien city’ has been spotted.
The first appearance was documented in the footage below as early as last year in the Chinese city of Jiangxi.
