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).

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.
