THESE incredible images appear to show giant devil horns rising over the Persian Gulf during a solar eclipse. A photographer waited in just the right place to snap the rare spectacle as the sun was partially blocked by the moon at dawn.

“This type of mirage over the ocean is called Fata Morgana and occurs when rays of light are bent when they pass through air layers of different temperatures. It is named after the Arthurian sorceress Morgan Le Fay because it was once believed the mirages were a fairy castle created by her witchcraft to lure sailors to their deaths,” according to The Sun.
