Brocken Spectre

Brocken Spectre

A climber in Poland's Tatra mountains has photographed a rare optical phenomenon known as a 'Brocken spectre'. The illusion occurs when an observer sees his own shadow cast on a cloud bank at a lower altitude. The head of the eerie-looking figure is often surrounded by colored rings of light. According to superstition, a person who sees a Brocken spectre will die in the mountains the following day. More at Mail Online.
