On 25 January 2016 at 12:45 UTC several photographs of the offshore wind farm Horns Rev 2 were taken by helicopter pilot Gitte Lundorff with an iPhone. A very shallow layer of fog covered the sea. The photos of the fog over the sea
dramatically pictured the offshore wind farm wake. Researchers got together to investigate the atmospheric conditions at the time of the photos by analysing local meteorological observations and wind turbine information, satellite remote
sensing and nearby radiosonde data. Two wake models and one mesoscale model were used to model the case and explain what was seen.
