What Caused China’s ‘Floating City’ In The Sky? | Imm

(hahaha-hahahaha)
It’s funny because the information given speaks of our eyes and our brains but what about the camera shooting the imagery? Not all cameras are created equal, so why not show a visually superior picture of the actual “nothing”, if there is in-fact “nothing” there?
But let’s dispense with all the speculation… I just love all the techno babble (translated into something our minds can comprehend, no less) to explain this phenomena.
Let them just “make-up” a word/definition combination to hide the truth, yet again.
Oh and another thing, I wouldn’t trust nasa to tie my shoe, let alone tell me any truth.
*************

Thousands of residents from Jiangxi and Foshan in China reported seeing a “floating city” in the sky earlier this month. The images and grainy video footage appear to show towering skyscrapers poking out of the clouds and looming over the ground below.

Of course, the news has got people’s imaginations turned up to overdrive when trying to figure out what was going on. Explanations for the event have ranged from a glitch in the matrix, alternate universes opening up and NASA attempting to establish a new world order through a plan called the “Blue Beam Project”.

However, it appears the explanation is actually a rare type of mirage called Fata Morgana. It’s essentially an optical illusion caused by specific weather conditions bending light rays. As Wired explains, it occurs when the Sun heats up a layer of the atmosphere but the layer of air below it remains cool. When different layers of the atmosphere are different temperatures, a temperature gradient is generated. These different temperatures also mean differing densities between the layers.

When light hits a boundary between two layers of the atmosphere that are different temperatures and thus densities, it is bent, or refracted, and subsequently enters the next layer at a different angle. Our brain can’t automatically account for this, so when light hits our eyes, our brain assumes that it traveled in a straight path. When it has been refracted, we therefore perceive the object is where it would be if the light had run straight – which is higher than it actually is.

Fata Morganas have been confusing people and messing with minds for centuries. They’re named after Morgan le Fay, a powerful enchantress from the tales of King Arthur. It’s believed they are the explanation behind the legendary ghost ship the Flying Dutchman and sailor’s stories of floating castles which lured men to their deaths.

So there you have it. Although, we’ve got our eye on you NASA…

My blog, My way

Welcome to a little piece of my life.
Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings.

For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life.

Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~

You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-)

And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse.
There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
