Tonight’s clear skies and very low humidity created optimal conditions to capture both a superior and inferior mirage at sunset over the Ocean. Without getting too scientific, a superior mirage occurs above the Sun and the much more common inferior mirage occurs below the Sun. For a more detailed explanation learn more about these here.
The images below were taken from the Fire Island National Seashore Visitor Center at Smith Point Beach with a Nikon D750 and Sigma 150-600mm lens. In the background you will notice Old Inlet and Davis Park. Check out the Waxing Gibbous moon at 93% full on the second page.
