One man says he was “stunned” to look out to sea from a village in Cornwall in south-west England, and saw a huge ship suspended over mid-air over the water. It was not his eyes that betrayed him, but a rare weather phenomenon that causes icicle illusion.
The BBC News meteorologist David Brain explained that what David Morris captured with his camera lens was not living, but “excellent mirage” due to more typical conditions in the Trahimam Arctic than the English coast.
“Superior marriage occurs due to weather conditions known as temperature reversals, where cold air comes close to the ocean with warm air above it,” Brain said. “Cold air is less than hot air, so it gives a light curve to someone’s eyes standing on the ground or on the shore, changing what a distant object looks like.”
PreviousThe world may well be involved in this delusion, but the totally images captured by Morris are some of the clearest examples of today’s excellent mirage.
Brain said that while in this event the ship is seen floating on water, “sometimes visible objects below the horizon may be visible,” casting objects or objects, which would otherwise be almost invisible to anyone’s sight like a giant mirror.
