Mirage of an unknown city

June, 1801–a mirage of an unknown city, seen for more than an hour, at Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland. It was a representation of mansions, Fort says, surrounded by shrubbery and white palings, with forests behind. In October 1796, a mirage of a walled town had been seen distinctly for half an hour at the same town. The next year, in March, a walled town was also seen in Youghal.
