Sinn Féin TDs try to hunker down in the Twilight Zone
A few days ago, the inhabitants of two cities in China were transfixed, and the denizens of social media all agog, over a mysterious object which materialised in the sky above Jiangxi and Foshan. It appeared to be a metropolis of towering buildings nestling in the middle of a cloud formation.
It brought streets to a standstill for the fleeting few minutes it was visible. Was it a glimpse into a parallel universe? Or was it a secret weapon being tested by a hostile power? Or was it a UFO?
But weather experts had an explanation for the unsettling sighting. It was an optical illusion known as a Fata Morgana - a type of mirage which distorts objects from their original appearance, rendering them almost unrecognisable.
