May 9 at 16:00 over the Gulf of Haikou emerged a unique natural phenomenon — a mirage. Almost an hour Haikou residents could see a ghost town, hanging over the sea (see photo), a lot of people had gathered on the shore to witness the phenomenon.


According to reports, there was a mirage because of abnormally high temperatures, which was established in the last days on the island of Hainan, usually unusual this time of year.
