What causes those "reflecton pools" on the road on a sunny day? I really hope someone knows what I'm talking about, but on a sunny day (I've even seen it when it was getting dark)if you are "level" (or generaly even)with the road in front of you (not a lot of hills and turns) you can see (if it is straight and flat) a refletionary "pool" in the road. Ofcourse it goes away once you get closer but from a distance (somehow) the tar on the road can reflect things directly over it, and/or if nothing is over it it will seem like a silvery splotch in the road. Can anyone explain this? First of all does has anyone also witnessed it? If not get in your car real fast find a relatively flat strait stretch of road and look towards the horizon of the road. You will see what I am talking about. Please reply if you have even SEEN it so I don't feel like a lost fool!
