Link to picture (below the pic it says: "Mirage witnessed from land."): http://frontpage.fok.nl/nieuws/64655

In the city of Penglay on the easternshore of China people witnessed a strange mirage last Sunday. It appeared in the bay and showed a complete city with skyscrapers, moving traffic and even walking people. The whole event lasted for 4 hours. It was also witnessed by many tourists, due to a holidayweekend.

EDIT: changed Fata Morgana to Mirage

What's a Fata Morgana? I looked it up on Wikipedia but it was quite vague on what the effects actually are.

Optical illusion or a mirage. Should have called it that.

Nope. But at that place alot of mirages occur. Quite frequently even. But one as big as this one has never been witnessed.

Hlow could a mirage have it's photo taken. This seems to be a farce.
