We are sure that, at first, this man must have been rather perplexed by such a scene. Looking out over the North Sea from the coastal road he was driving on, Colin’s attention was caught by a large freighter off the coast which, as the video shows, doesn’t appear to be sliding across the water, but. .. float in the sky!

The ship in question was clearly the unintentional object of an optical illusion in its own right. On the horizon, the limits of the sea and the sky could not be distinguished with precision, and the end result was exactly as described: the ship appeared to be floating in the sky.

Astonished, this man thought that it was better to film and share what he observed, while also giving his explanation for the phenomenon. “I think the optical illusion was caused by cloud formation closer to the shore, which helped change the color of the water. The boat, being far away, was in a cloudless area, where we could see the reflection of the sky on the sea. That is why it seemed to be floating in the air. “

Of course, as often happens in these cases, there was no lack of comments and reactions. Some also claimed that it was a “fake”, so “impossible” that it could not be true. Yet Colin swears he saw this incredible illusion with his own eyes. What do you think? Isn’t it amazing what he saw?
