|Juan de Fuca Superior Mirages
More superior mirages captured by Robert Meldrum looking from Victoria, B.C. across the Strait of Juan de Fuca towards Washington State - see earlier OPOD. “It was a very warm day, and the flood tide had brought cold water into the Strait from the Pacific, chilling the air above it and setting the stage for mirages.”
There are three images, the lower ‘real’ one topped by an inverted one. Above that is a strongly flattened third erect image. The erect, inverted, erect rule is nicely obeyed!
The 'hole in the hull' on the upper ship(s) is miraged sea between the inverted and erect images.
