On September 13, a blood-red moon suddenly appeared in Shenyang, scaring those who witnessed it. As it is popularly associated with the disaster, some people wondered if it was a warning sign due to recent events in the area: strange explosions at the military airport in the northern theater; and lockdowns due to the pandemic outbreak.
