The Flying Dutchman Phantom
Digital Art - Digital Painting
From the one hand, we believe in ghosts. From the other hand, we create them. So... we haunt ourselves? The Flying Dutchman is undeniably the most famed ghost ship in nautical folklore; as legend has it, she is doomed to sail “the seven seas” for eternity and she can never return home. The name of this ship has become a generic term for identifying either a fictional phantom ship or a real abandoned ship – often seen as an apparition – floating freely after being reported sunk. The Flying Dutchman is usually spotted in a ghostly glow from a far distance. However, there might be a quite plausible scientific explanation for these sightings. There exists a curious atmospheric phenomenon called fata morgana – a mirage resulting from certain temperature conditions which can create an illusion that ships or even islands below the horizon line are floating above it.
