Composite of timelapse images showing the development of a superior mirage. At right there is no mirage. As the mirage develops the houses (white) appear taller. A superior mirage, also known as a Fata Morgana mirage, is an optical phenomenon caused by light passing through a region where two layers of air at different temperatures meet. This results in distortion of objects in the far distance. Photographed in Lesconil, Brittany, France.
