Residents of a Chinese city had a shock this week when they woke up to see the sky had turned pink.
The city of Dexing, in south-east China’s Jiangxi Province, had been troubled by air pollution as the odd colour appeared in the sky on January 6, reported People’s Daily Online.
Local authorities claimed the unusual glow was a result of light travelling through thickening clouds and that it was a ’natural phenomenon’.
Residents of Dexing, a city of around 300,000 people, linked the event to air and water pollution.
A social media user, who claims to have lived in Dexing for decades, wrote on Weiboon January 7: ’Copper mines and various chemical factories discharge their waste at will. However the government did not pay attention.
’Now [the pollution] has seriously affected the residents’ daily life.’
Pictures of the eerie scenes in Dexing have also been widely shared on Chinese social media.
Three pictures, believed to be taken from a local school, showed the sky glowing a pink hue as the night began to fall.
Dexing residents first reported seeing pink sky at around 6:30am on January 5.
Pink sky was also observed in Nanning, Guangxi Province, this week, according to on.cc.
Dexing Environmental Protection Bureau had launched an investigation. They claimed that the pink sky was a ’natural phenomenon’.
An unnamed official from the bureau told a local reporter: ’There are two factories near where the photos were taken, and one manufactures plastic containers, the other produces sulfuric acid.
’Neither generates any waste that can cause the sky to turn pink.’
