<br>A ‘{113} miragehas been caught on camera hovering over water in a national park in Alaska.

The strange domeshaped object in the {84} is actually your {60} being tricked into seeing a distorted version of an island.

The footage was captured at the Glacier Bay National Park and Reserve.

The park posted the {84} to its Facebook page and explained that the mirage is called aFata Morgana“.

A Fata Morgana is a mirage that appears just above the horizon and can significantly distort an object thats already there.

Glacier Bay National Park and Reserve explained on Facebook: “Fata Morgana is a mirage seen within a narrow band on Earths horizon.

Islands in glacier bay turn to UFOs or the flying Dutchman with a little imagination and a pinch of cool science!

When air of different densities meet, the air in Earths atmosphere acts as a refracting lens, creating the mirage effect we see.

Cool, calm air often forms at the waters surfacethen, if warm dense air pushes down on the cool air at the surface, a lens is created.”

The strange footage was captured back in June but wasnt revealed until now.

The Fata Morgana mirage appeared on a warm sunny day but isnt said to be exclusive to summer months.
