A large container ship and other vessels appear to be hovering in the sky off the coast of Kent, UK, in this footage taken on 24 June from Minster on Sea.

The optical illusion shown in the video makes the vessel look as if it is floating above the water's surface.

The illusion is known as Fata Morgana and it's caused when rays of light pass through ai layers of different temperatures.
