mi·rage

  (mĭ-räzh′)

n.

  1. An optical phenomenon that creates the illusion of water, 
    often with inverted reflections of distant objects, and results 
    from distortion of light by alternate layers of hot and cool air. 
    Also called fata morgana.
  2. Something illusory or insubstantial.
