Mirage in the South American Pampas


WAS staying in the Pampas of the Argentine Republic, near Melincue, a small town of the Province of Santa Fe, from September 1888 to March 1889. During my stay I had the opportunity of observing certain mirage phenomena. It is possible that my notes may contain something of interest. They were, designedly, taken without reference to any previous knowledge of the theory of mirage that I might possess.
