comment Is there any case in physics where the equations of motion depend on high time derivatives of the position?
Any other classical (or non-classical) problems involving jerk?

comment Is this a Fata Morgana?
@PeterShor It was taken in Israel, the coast of the Mediterranean sea, around September.

How's that this layer of clouds have such a uniform height above the horizon? I would expect that when clouds appear more dense near the horizon they'll go from sparse to dense in a more gradual transition than seen here. I see a lot of similarity in the uniform height of the layer to that seen in superior mirages, like here.

Maybe Fata Morgana is a wrong name for this phenomena. I think that superior mirage is more adequate. If this dark layer is because of light diffraction by clouds as you suggested, why its boundary is so sharp and at such a uniform height above the horizon? I would expect the change in the brightness to be more gradual.

comment Dark and bright areas around atoms in a scanning tunnelling microscope image
I'm interested in the probability density $|\Psi(\mathbf{r}, t)|^2$ of finding an atom at a given position. Is it possible that the atoms are pretty well localized in space, and yet we will see those wave-like patterns in the STM image, e.g. a quantum mirage inside a quantum corall?
