Conspiracy theorists fear that opening a portal into another dimension could have catastrophic consequences for the world.
But other conspiracy theorists insist that the reports of "floating cities" from around the world could be a sign that the Illuminati elite are close to implementing the much-anticipated Project Blue Beam deception.
Conspiracy theorists say that the sightings could be tests of the latest Project Blue Beam technology to see how people around the world would react when the New World Order (NWO) elites move to implement their sinister agenda.
Project Blue Beam, according to Serge Monast, a Quebecois conspiracy theorist, is a plan to take over the world by using holographic image projection technology to simulate the second coming of Christ. Some versions of the theory claim that the NWO elite will simulate an alien invasion.
But Scott C. Waring, editor of the UFO conspiracy theory blog, UFO Sightings Daily, has speculated that the phenomenon might be linked to aliens and UFOs.
"Did aliens construct a mothership that looks just like a Chinese city?" he wondered. "It's a reflection off of a cloaked mothership. Yes, sometimes the cloak of a UFO can reflect like a mirror, and here it is doing just that."
"I have seen a UFO in the blue sky near a white cloud, but the UFO looked white, because its cloak was reflecting the color of the cloud," he added.
But meteorologists have dismissed the conspiracy theory claims, saying that the "floating city" can be explained as a natural phenomenon called Fata Morgana.
A fata morgana is a naturally occurring optical illusion on land or sea due to the inversion and distortion of light rays from objects at sea -- such as boats and ships or structures on coastlines -- passing through layers of air with different temperatures.
