nice find!


I've been trying to locate that ferry wheel and the building behind it for hours yesterday but couldn't find a picture of it.

Guess that makes it 100% hoax then. Not the image, but the idea that it's a mirrage.

Its an "antisheep" phenomenon - where ATS users are so eager and desperatly keen to prove to themselves that they arent sheep, that they will believe ANYTHING that they think is unusual or out of the norm or something a sheep might not believe.
And in that way, become some of the most gullible people on the planet.


"Anti-sheep phenomenon!" That is so awesome -- that's got to catch on. So ATS, too.

It scares me that anyone would think the OP clip is real.

I don't think so its ITN News. How far in real terms are the buildings are they really below the horizone and being projected up by the water molecules or are they hundreds of miles away. Because that would be impossible as far as I am aware.


The ITN logo tricked me( edit to add infact the ITN news clip was real news.itn.co.uk...) however the mirage did not as I said it would have to be just below the horizon and be projected up for it to be a true mirage .en.wikipedia.org...

Superior mirage


A superior mirage occurs when the air below the line of sight is colder than that above. This is called a temperature inversion, since it does not represent the normal temperature gradient of the atmosphere. In this case the light rays are bent down and so the image appears above the true object, hence the name superior. Superior mirages are in general less common than inferior mirages, but when they do occur, they tend to be more stable, as cold air has no tendency to move up or warm air to move down.

Superior mirages are most common in polar regions, especially over large sheets of ice with a uniform low temperature. They also occur at more moderate latitudes, although in those cases they are weaker and less smooth and stable. For example, a distant shoreline may appear to tower and look higher (and thus perhaps closer) than it really is. Because of the turbulence, there seem to be dancing spikes and towers. This type of mirage is also called the Fata Morgana or hillingar in the Icelandic language.

It seems Architectonical Mirages find themselves comfortable glowing off China coasts... Or at least they love to be reported there.

And truly uncreative repeaters who pretend to be scientific repeate this quote.

wow!
Thats crazy!

another youtube commenter said what I was thinking..



This is more like a manifestation of another world from another dimension or parallel reality due to mixing of two frequency ranges of the ours reality and thats of the other reality.

XNAME41


haha!
Watching "charlie jade" recently online probably helped the thought..
but I do believe parallel realties do exist, and just may be able to merge, someday, somehow..

Unless there is a fully scientific, and logical explanation for it?
I didnt read anything yet, only watched the video.
So pardon my possible ignorance here. lol

Thats amazing though.

So have we confirmed this as real or not. Seems like the first page had a lot of debunkers, or were they just disinfo agents?

i would love to hear why any sane person could possible think this was a real event?

(ITN should be ashamed of themselves for broadcasting chinese brainwashing)

I'm totally confused. I watched the video saw a skyline with low fog (like San Francisco on a foggy morning), and couldn't figure out what all the hub bub was about. I was interpreting "mirage" as a poor word choice for the fact that it just looked neat, like the buildings were floating in the clouds. Not that there were was scenery visible that wasn't actually there. I didn't get that in any description.

So I'm confused about what people are calling hoax on?

ETA: Okay, I get your going off the woman's commentary, that really doesn't say much. Optical illusion of what? She really doesn't say enough to even get what the optical illusion really is. ???

Has anybody seen my wife, Morgan Fairchild? it's getting late and I need my coffee.

Non-sequitur - Statement that has no relation to topic at hand.

Anybody who for one second thinks this is a mirage is part of the test to measure the extent of citizens willingness to believe fantasy.
