Saturday night's alright for parallel universes

This has been making the rounds across the 'socials' over the past several days.. I figured why not give some air time to the strange photo on the HORROR REPORT as well..

What are you are seeing here is, to some at least, am image of a parallel universe in China:

China-2-367963

It appears to be a photo of a floating city in the sky above the nation.. It was a screen capture from a now very widely viewed YOUTUBE video featuring a series of the images--ones we are told have been witnessed in person by hundreds of people ..

FROM THE UK EXPRESS (taking things with a grain of salt is an immediate requirement, but nonetheless, we'll repeat their reporting):
Onlookers, some who are said to have videoed the bizarre event, were said to be mesmerised  as a towering city of sky scrapers appeared from the clouds.

First thousands reportedly saw a ghostly alien city floating over Foshan in the Guangdong province of China.

A few days later people in the province of Jiangxi, China, also reported seeing a similar cloud city.

Fair and fine.
But besides the other worldly nature of this whole thing, what ELSE could it logically be?

Maybe .. Fata Morgana

Yes the cloud formation is surely baffling, but it could also be very natural.. It could be project Blue Beam.. or again, Fata Morgana.

A Fata Morgana is a type of mirage that distort distance objects, and can be can be seen on land or sea.


It's caused when the sun heats up the atmosphere above the land or oceans, which creates a gradient of temperatures.


And that is exactly what this 'cloud city' may be.

Or .. it's none of the above. And instead some vision of the past, present.. or future in the clouds.

Have fun with it. But keep a bit of logic about yourself.

DOES 'MOTHER!' DESERVE THE PRAISE IT IS GETTING? (A spoiler alert with this one)

The horror film 'mother!' Is getting high praise from noble media affiliations. It is also being billed as an intellectual horror flick with a message.. religious overtones.. social justice ramifications.
Big name star: Lawrence. Big name director: Aronofsky (BLACK SWAN FAME) Shock scene (SPOILER): Infant being eaten.



Let's unpack this.. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/jennifer-lawrences-mother-marks-new-turn-year-prestige-horror-1039071) opines:
Taken purely on its surface, the film is about the horror of hosting ungrateful houseguests. Going beneath that surface, it’s about gruesome male narcissism. Ignoring its text and subtext entirely though, mother! is something more ambitious: A herald of prestige horror at a moment when we might actually need it. It’s September, the calm before the dizzying storm of awards season self-aggrandizement, when we stop thinking of movies as works of art and start thinking of them as show horses; we sac…
