The spring mirage for which Uozu is famous for may be seen on warm, sunny, windless days from April to June. Refraction of light at the boundary between warm air above and colder air near the surface of the sea is responsible for the phenomenon. During a mirage, faraway objects such as ships at sea or the coastline appear to grow vertically, and may display bar-code-like stripes. In a Class A Mirage, the image of an object may appear upside-down above it.

If ITN really covered this story and it is not a mash up on utube they should be ashamed of themselves.
Please watch the clip at this link. THis is the station that is responsible for your mirage.
anyone who thinks that mirage is genuine needs to get off their medication.
