Artist Phillip K. Smith III created a real-life mirage in the middle of Joshua Tree National Park in California.

Smith created "Lucid Stead" by installing alternating mirrored slats on the facade of an abandoned 70-year-old homesteader cabin.

By day, it is naturally lit by the rising and setting sun, with the mirrored slats making the cabin look hollow or even look like it is disappearing altogether.

At night, however, the windows and door glow with LED lights that very slowly change their color over the course of the night.

The LED lights are also powered by solar panels.
