THE MIRAGE.—There is a certain angle at which a ray of light, having passed through one medium, on coming to the surface of the one below will not pass into it, but will be totally reflected back into the first med. ium as from a mirror. This is called the critical angle. Different strata of air answer this purpose, and hence the mirage.

Suppose the atmospheric strata in the figure decrease in density from a to d, owing to the

The direction of theray will then be upward. The sky, being thus reflected from near the ground, looks like a lake

in the desert. In the mirage over water, the lower stratum of air is cooled, so as to be denser than the upper. The course of the rays is then as shown in the engraving—the reverse of the mirage on the desert. Vessels hidden by the curvature of the earth, will be reflected upside down in the air.
