Officers on board the Vancouver tug Bermuda, which arrived yesterday at Tacoma from Vancouver, reported having witnessed a wonderful mirage while crossing the Strait Of Fuca(sic) Wednesday afternoon. During the mysterious phenomenon, which lasted nearly two hours, the Olympic mountain range was mirrored in the heavens while several vessels that appeared in the picture seemed to float in the clouds like so many aeroplanes.
"The horizon seemed scarcely a mile away," said one of the officers, "and the mountains seemed to hang from the clouds."
Vancouver Province, August 1998
