Scientific Phenomena or Faerie on Earth?
A mirage is an illusion, an optical phenomenon caused by the reflection and refraction of light in unique atmospheric conditions. Most modern travelers in the deserts and navigators on the seas know the phenomenon of the mirage, as did people in antiquity. Desert travelers commonly see illusions of glittering lands and glistening water, and sailors commonly see images of sunken cities and mountains and phantom ships sailing in the distance.
