This day in MN history

June 9th

1913 Strange mirage in Duluth. Ships appeared to be floating in the air over Lake
Superior.

2002 Extensive flash flood began across northwest Minnesota. 14.55 inches would fall
over the next 48 hours near Lake of the Woods. Floodwaters covered the city of Roseau.
The Roseau River looked like a large lake from a satellite view.


That mirage is actually quite common on the lake. Because of the cold air over the lake, it bends light in such a fashion as to make things look larger or floating. Learn that in HS physics class years ago.
