David Morris said he was “stunned” to see a giant vessel seemingly suspended over the surface of the sea. It’s a truly “superior mirage.”

“Superior mirages occur because of the weather condition known as a temperature inversion, where cold air lies close to the sea with warmer air above it,” Braine said. “Since cold air is denser than warm air, it bends light towards the eyes of someone standing on the ground or on the coast, changing how a distant object appears.”
