Images of what appears to be a hovering ship have been captured as the result of a rare optical illusion off the coast of England.

Probably atmospheric refraction, you can get some very strange looking effects at times.
Saw a weird one on You Tube the other day, a helicopter flying over a harbour, it's rotors were the same speed as the cameras frame rate, so it appeared to be flying about with its rotors not moving at all!
P.S. REF: RJM Corbet.
I think that's quoted in Ian Flemming's "Goldfinger"!
