Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy THE MIRAGE layers refract the light rays her question: What causes a mirage? A mirage is a master magi- Normally we behold the scenery only as far as the cian that fools the eye. It even horizon. But a type of mirage can fool a camera. For ex- called "looming" can reveal ample, we see puddles shining objects from beyond the on the road ahead If we pause horizon, where they should be out of sight. These images also are created by the refrac- tion of light rays through air layers of different densities. Looming can make a distant pavement was dry all the ship look taller, show us a time. We can't say that the mirage of the sun just before mirage did not exist. It did it actually rises, or reveal a but we did not see what we distant shoreline from beyond the horizon. In polar regions, combinations of different type mirages create fantastic il- lusions on and above the frozen white wastelands to take a photograph, most likely the puddles will appear in the picture. But as we approach, the water dis- appears and we know that the thought we saw Mirages are mysterious because both parties involved in the trickery are invisible. One is ordinary white light, that travels in straight lines The other is the air, which in this case is arranged in layers of different density In dense layers the gaseous molecules are crowded close together In less dense layers there are fewer molecules, spread farther part. Normally, straight rays of light bounce from various ob- jects and carry true pictures of the scenery to our eyes. In a mirage, the light rays do a double or sometimes a triple bounce on the way They shift parts of the scenery from here to there and we see a misplac- ed picture as a mirage As a rule, a layer of extra dense air bends, or refracts light rays downward A layer of thin, less dense air tends to refract the rays upward And wherever they go, the refracted rays take their im- ages and transplant them somewhere else The puddle- on-the-road mirage appears on a warm sunny day. when the hot ground warms a thin layer of air above the surface This warm air is thin and light and the cooler air above it is much denser Things are set for a mirage The lower layer of warm air refracts the light rays up through denser air above The angled rays transplant a reflected image of the sky a mirage that looks like a pud- dle on the road ahead As we get closer it disappears into thin air, which is where it came from An illusion of this sort is called an inferior mirage because the image we see is below the real object Sometimes realistic details are added upside down. Reflections of trees or an on- coming car may appear up- side down in the puddle on the road. In a superior mirage, image appears above the real object This usually occurs when the lower air is much denser than the air above Often this happens over the sea The contrasting air Andy sends a seven-volume set of The Chronicles of Nar- nia to Karen Soo Chan, age 7, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, for her question Are turtles different from tor- toises? Some people call them all turtles and some people call them all tortoises All these animals are very much alike but there are differences Some like to spend all their time, or most of their time on the dry land As a rule, these fellows are called the tor- toises They have stubby legs and some tortoises have claws on their toes But none of them can walk very fast. Turtles prefer to spend most of their time in the water and some of them hard- ly ever come near the land. The smallish ones spend most of their lives in fresh water streams and ponds They have legs and feet and sometimes they walk on the land But the big ocean-going turtles have flippers instead of legs Swimming is easy for them, but walking is very difficult The male turtles never leave the sea The females only come on land to lay their eggs Questions asked by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
