Caption: Desert mirage. 1886 illustration of a group of nomads looking at a mirage in a desert. A mirage is an optical atmospheric phenomenon caused by the Sun heating layers of air and affecting their refractive indexes. A mirage can reflect real objects some distance away below the horizon, or simply display as a shimmering effect that appears to be a body of water.
