Broken Mirage

Uploaded by: katy99780

Friday April 11, 2014

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: We have had these 'superior mirages' on our horizons quite a bit lately, as cold dense layer of night air is trapped beneath a layer of warmer layer aloft, temperature inversions.

Here, a few minutes after the other shot, lower layers are warming and the inversion is breaking up.

15 below zero.

Such beauty on our planet!! If I weren't so old, I would love to take a trip up there and see all this beauty for myself, but since this isn't going to happen, I can enjoy it from your great scenic! Congrats and 10 from SW Iowa

The sunlight brings the snow to a beautiful glow, but the inversion still creates that wonderful mirage !
Gorgeous shot, Katy !

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
