A unique optical phenomenon was seen above the sea level in the north of Haikou City at 4 p.m. on May 9. Local residents were amazed by a mirage of a ghost city that hung between the sky and sea. The miracle lasted for an hour. It appeared due to the extremely high temperature on Hainan Island that is not common for this season of the year.

 

Another mirage witnessed in China is reported to have occured on July 26, 2010. A ghost city of skyscrapers was seen on the Sanya Sea. It was unclear at around 6 a.m. But 45 minutes later as the ship approached to the target, officers and soldiers could see an island with high buildings hanging between the sea and sky. They took pictures of this amazing phenomenon that disappeared at 7.12 a.m.

A mirage is a phenomenon that appears when the layers of the air and water have big differences in temperature. It is caused by the light that comes through the air layers leading to reflection or refraction.
