Charles M. Beeghly mirage anchored above Sarnia - Scott Williams

Beeghly and lake surface seen inverted over the lake

From the Coast Pilot: A mirage is caused by refraction of light rays in a layer of air having rapidly increasing or decreasing density near the surface. A marked decrease in the density of the air with increasing altitude is the causes of such phenomena known as looming, towering, and superior mirages. A superior mirage is so named because of the appearance of image above the actual object. Ships have been seen with an inverted image above.
