The Silent City - Prince Luigi

A decade after the New York Times reported that there was no proof to support the claims that The Silent City exists, Prince Luigi Amedeo claimed to have seen it while climbing Mt. Saint Elias. On the morning of July 7th, 1897, Prince Luigi and the members of his expedition claim the Silent City was "mirrored in the clear atmosphere."

One wrote, "It was so distinct... that it required... strong faith to believe that it was not in reality a city." The expedition claimed the image lasted some 30 minutes before dissipating.
