Today's winner is: j Candy Oldfield. 10, San Jose. Calif. Most people think of a mirage as something that occurs only in the blazing heat of a desert, and is seen by weary travelers who are dying for lack of water. Well, you have probably seen more mirages than any traveler in the desert! Here is why. When you ride oni a highway on a hot day and ap-i proach the top of a hill, the road' ahead may look wet. You are see! ing a mirage. Because of course.; I when you reach the "wet" pan ! you find that it is really dry and : the "wet" area seems to have | moved farther ahead. ' What you really see is light i from the sky that has been bent by a layer of hot air with cooler lair above it. This makes the road | look wet. To the thirsty traveler in | the desert, this same condition may cause him to have a vision | of a lake of clear water surrounded by trees. What happens, whether it's on a broad, sandy plain, or on a highway that has become heated by the sun, is that the air next to the surface of the earth becomes less dense than the cooler air above it Under these conditions, jthe light waves coming from a distant object or from the sky travel faster in this heated, less 'dense air than in the upper, cooler air. I The light waves are therefore (bent (or "refracted"] upward, so that they seem to come from a lower point than they actually do. In other words, you see the light waves coming from the sky as if they were coming from the road or desert and you have the I impression of seeing water. A very curious type of mirage sometimes occurs at sea. People can see ships and icebergs above (the level of the ocean when there! i are really' none nearby. This effect is called "looming." In this case, there is cold air near the surface and warm air over it. Distant objects seem to be raised by the bending of the light rays. They can be seen even when they! lie beyond the horizon.
