Still Waters

A Finnish border guard was, quite literally, stopped in their tracks Sunday after a ‘new island’ appeared in the middle of the frozen Lake Inari without warning.

Wow I have never seen such a convincing mirage! Why is it so detailed?

Probably it is so detailed because the cold air is very still compared to mirages in hot air.

Those vertical sections that look like panels in a sea wall, are quite common in mirages. They're sometimes called ramparts. The details of distant terrain get stretched and smeared out by atmospheric refraction, giving them a nearly uniform, wall-like appearance.

I didn't know you could take a photo of a mirage.
