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

28/FRI Winter's back breaks about the end of February. heat arising from the desert's scorched sands, a ray of light coming from the object will be refracted from the perpendicular in passing downward through the stratum a, still more in passing through b, and so on until it reaches a stratum, d, where the critical angle is reached and the ray becomes totally reflected. 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.
