Earlier this month, Chinese residents saw a city rise from a river: a wonderful mirage!

Eh... The tittle says it all, pretty much...

It is reported to be a mirage, but it is an incredible one! I had never seen something like this, for sure.

Is it the same phenomenon that makes the scientists say some UFOs are in fact reflection of distant planetary body?



A mirage is a naturally occurring phenomenon that happens because light travels on the fastest possible route instead of going in a straight line. The rays bend around denser, colder sections of air to show the image of a distant object.


So... Light doesn't travel by the fastest road when going in a straight line? How's that possible?

Well, enjoy the video, if you can't enjoy all the science!




Article I found.

If this phenomenon allows for seeing things from afar, why are there no designs for a system that would recreate
this natural phenomenon to study planets of our solar system? That would be awesome!!!

Enjoy!

Oops! My bad! I searched but didn't find it... I guess I'm lousy at finding things! LOL

Thanks!

PS: Maybe we should have a search engine for videos? Would that be possible?

Well, call me deranged! It's way better than simply pointing to the thread debunking this!

I should have known it was a hoax before hand!

3rd post.

I'm so sorry! How many times should I say it? All I see are people saying I'm stupid, but they don't tell me why or how...
