Caption

Desert mirage. 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. Artwork from 'A Treatise on Meteorology: With a Collection of Meteorological Tables' (1868) by the American mathematician Elias Loomis (1811-1889).
