It is reported to be a mirage, but it is an incredible one! I had never seen something like this, for sure.
Is it the same phenomenon that makes the scientists say some UFOs are in fact reflection of distant planetary body?
A mirage is a naturally occurring phenomenon that happens because light travels on the fastest possible route instead of going in a straight line. The
rays bend around denser, colder sections of air to show the image of a distant object.
So... Light doesn't travel by the fastest road when going in a straight line? How's that possible?
Well, enjoy the video, if you can't enjoy all the science!
