When most people think of a mirage they imagine a person n a hot desert seeing a cool body of water ahead of him -only to find it isn't there. But he fact is that you have probably seen a mirage many times n your life! Try to remember some time vhen you were riding along a country road on a hot day in :ummer. As you looked ahead of you, a small, silvery lake -uddenly appeared covering the ·oad. Of course, when you ar- ·ived at that spot, you found the road was perfectly dry. The fact is that you didn't really see water. And it is that appearance of. water that we call a mirage. Why did that water seem to je there? It is caused by some- ning that happens to light rays when they pass through the air. Usually, the light by which you "ee things travels through the ai- in straight lines. But this is only true when the air is all at -he same temperature. Now aii-, like most other ma- trials, changes when it is warmed. It expands and becomes thinner, or less dense. As i result, light is bent aside when it goec from a layer at different temperature. On a sunny day, the pavement of the road becomes quite hot. This warms the air just above the road, while the air higher up stays cooler. Light coming down from the sky through these layers is bent upward again to your eyes. And it is that bright patch of light that looks like water. Exactly the same thing happens in the desert. The air close to the desert sand is made very hot by the sand. The air above this lower layer is cooler. Light rays passing from the cooler layer to the hot layer are bent up, and they form an image of the sky that looks like a lake. By the way, the twinkling of the stars is a kind of mirage. There are warm and cool patches of air drifting through the earth's atmosphere. They affect the light coming from the stars and make them seem to twinkle. * * * FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. What can you serve but not eat? 2. Why should a horse never be hungry on a journey? 3.
