ANSWER: Inferior mirage: Occurs when the air near the ground is much warmer than the air above. Objects may not only appear to be lower than they really are, but also (often) inverted. Superior mirage: When cold air lies close to the surface with warm air aloft, light is refracted toward the normal causing objects to appear to be shifted upward.
