A weather phenomenon resulted in the Milwaukee, Wisc. skyline being visible from West Michigan this week.

The phenomenon, called a fata morgana, which is caused by a temperature inversion that bends light's rays causing an image to flip or appear closer, made the city that is 70 miles away across Lake Michigan seem much, much closer.

Wikipedia explains that a fata morgana is basically a mirage, and is most commonly seen in polar regions.
