As sprawling housing developments and skyscrapers in one of the world's most populous countries, these tower blocks and recently-built neighbourhoods should be busy and swarming with people.

And despite pictures last year showing some of the reported 64 million empty homes, Chinese authorities have since erected masses more buildings.
Gillem Tulloch, an aanlyst for Forensic Asia Limited, described one of the areas in Chenggong, as a 'forest of skyscrapers'.
When asked what has happened in the past six months since the ghost cities were built, he said: 'China built more of them.

(Third pic from the bottom) You can see the sun with something in front of it, blocking the sunlight.
The smaller round blue building (above and slightly to the left of the sun) represents the moon.
At first glance I thought it would be a new moon but the moon is slightly off center. December 20th 2012 the moon is in the first quarter phase.
(If all this is right, the blood red moon will be a first quarter moon, which looks like a half moon.)
The bigger round thing represents Earth.

New King James Version
I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.
