This is an amazing optical illusion — caused by atmospheric conditions over the water bending light rays to make it look like the ship is above it. This video has a nice explanation (especially the bit starting around 1:20) . #FataMorgana
The proper term for this is “superior mirage” or “superior looming mirage” but I have seen the term “fata morgana” used for a similar phenomenon also caused by weird kinds of light bending over the ocean.

Rather than "optical illusion" it might be better to call this an "optics illusion." Your brain is processing visual information correctly, it's just that the light deflection makes that information unreliable!

In dit draadje wil ik eens samenvatten hoe je significant CO2 reductie kan bekomen. Het is niet in één tweet te vatten, daarom dit draadje
Er wordt altijd veralgemeend dat zonnepanelen goedkoper worden dan kernenergie, dat er genoeg zon valt op Belgie en zo kan PV elke vorm van energie gaan vervangen.

Dat is de wortel 🥕die voor onze neus 🤥hangt
Over welk energieverbruik spreken we ?
80TWh elektriciteit 100% CO2 vrij maken impliceert dat elke EV auto, elke WP verwarming en elke industrieel proces CO2vrij wordt
Tel daar 26TWh energie en 50TWh verwarming bij
voor die drie hebben we 155TWh enegie nodig
of 20GWp centrales
