TOURISTS have been swarming to a Bradford moor to hunt for a spooky "supernatural" weather phenomena that projects their shadows through the mist. They come in search of the Brocken Spectre - a phenomena so bizarre it inspired tragic tales in German folklore and has been variously recognised as a leprechaun, the Scottish Big Foot and the Brocken bow. First described in Germany's Harz Mountains, walkers have reported a flurry of recent sightings in Burley Moor in West Yorks., with sightings also common in Derbyshire and Scotland. Their dramatic photos show a magnificent optical illusion caused when sunshine shines behind the observer as they stand above the upper surface of a cloud - on a mountain or high ground - with the sun behind them.

Elise Viebeck, The Washington Post Published 8:07 pm, Monday, June 18, 2018 WEST JORDAN, Utah - Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration on Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a "humanitarian crisis" that will require Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Donald Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents "pretty disturbing" and "heartbreaking."
