Ghost Cities are bizarre manifestations that have been witnessed multiple times in China since 2011. In early October of 2015, residents of Foshan, China, saw a mysterious ghost city hovering over their own city. It happened again a few days later in Jiangxi.


The phenomenon is described as a mysterious ghostly city that appears in the skyline, usually in times where there are thick clouds in the sky, that appears to float high above the ground.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are many explanations as to what the phenomenon could be. Theories include:

  • An optical illusion/mirage
  • Extraterrestrial crafts


  • Reports of these sightings recalled a similar ghost city appearing over a river in Huanshan City in 2011.
  • The 2011 ghost city was seen by many Huanshan City residents who were able to take numerous clear pictures because the mysterious vision occurred well before nightfall. The images clearly showed buildings, structures and trees.
