A woman is visiting a settlement inhabited by one of China’s ethnic minorities, the Miao people, in Yunnan Province capital of Kunming. It’s a popular tourist spot and the woman has her smartphone out, filming on the edge of a pond. Suddenly, a strangely unsettling vision appears, something truly weird. If she hadn’t caught it on film, the phenomenon would be totally unbelievable.
The tourist posts a short clip of what she saw on the Chinese version of Twitter, Weibo. She shot the film near the city of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province in early November, 2019. And once online on social media, her footage quickly attracted lots of attention.
