what is difference between mirage and looming?

Asked by demo 13th March 2015, 6:23 PM

Mirage and looming both are results of total internal reflection of light.

However, mirage takes place in hot regions and Looming takes place in cold regions.

In mirage, light from distant objects appears to be reflected from ground and in looming distant objects appear to be flying.

For mirage to form, refractive index goes on increasing as we go up and for looming, refractive index goes on decreasing.
