Sunset reflections?

Sitting on the balcony watching the sunset and right after the sun goes down there are some weird looking clouds way out to the southwest. On closer inspection with the spotting scope it looks like an upside down reflection of the mountains. Is it possible the moisture in the air is refracting the visual of the mountains?

Yea pretty sure it's a mirage.

Bird Island. Isla de San Jorge. Mirage . Back in 2012, we had this discussion. Went on for many pages. Photos posted. The whole bit. Believe its still posted here somewhere.
That is correct. The mirages looking out towards Bird Island are good ones and there are some from time to time looking towards San Luis/Yuma from Cholla Bay.
