'Red phoenix' shines in Beijing sky

An auspicious sign was spotted in Beijing's skies Tuesday. A cloud in the shape of a phoenix was captured by many Beijing residents at sunset. The stunning beauty of the flaming cloud wowed many as the phoenix is a mythological bird in Chinese folklore that reigns over all other birds. In ancient China, the "King of Birds" symbolized the empress when paired with a dragon, which represented the emperor.

But not everybody appreciated the beautiful sight. One netizen said, "It looked to me like a roast chicken!"

Next up: some eagle-eyed Internet users nabbed BMWs for a tenth of their usual price.
