Fata Morgana Appears in Southwest Michigan
Fata morgana showed up in southwest Michigan last week in an appearance that brought the city of Chicago to quiet Berrien County.
The preceding sentence has nothing to do with exotic dancers.
Fata morgana is a mirage seen when light, water and air temperature all align to allow distant objects to be magnified and seem to be much closer than they really are. According to MLive.com, that's what happened last Wednesday, when photographer Jeri Raycraft was able to photograph the skyline of Chicago from the beach near St. Joseph in Michigan - 50 miles away.
