Sky Watch Friday

Here in the desert, heat is a way of life.

We are always aware of the temperature. Yesterday was a little cooler, it maxed out at about 41C.

Yet around midday our very dry lake looked to be full of water.

In fact it was full of sky. The biggest mirage I have ever seen on the lake.

The shimmer from the heat haze has blurred everything in the distance.

  1. Ah, yes, I remember mirages from living out on the prairies. Here in Western Washington if it looks like water, it is water.

  2. In the desert, if it looks like water, it probably isn’t :)
