There is a phenomenon of optical illusion that occurs in the sea, in which mirages distort the appearance of distant objects. Lighthouses, seagulls, islands, rocks, creatures and other elements float in the air and transform. The ancient sailors called it Fata Morgana. Fascinating and mysterious, in which reality dissipates and becomes suspended in a Finimondo against the clock.
