It's a satellite fish

02 November 2006


Sir, — You reported the image of a fish found reflected on the tarmac of a Welsh vicarage drive ( News, 8 July). I have seen many similar reflections which, like the Welsh one, disappeared after an hour or so.

In every case that I have investigated or discovered, the fish has turned out to be a reflection from a nearby wall-mounted TV satellite dish. It disappears as the sun moves round the sky.
