French painter Claude Monet’s masterpiece “Impression, Sunrise” came to life when China’s northernmost city of Mohe woke to a gauze-like ice fog triggered by a sudden and severe temperature drop.

The local temperature had dropped to minus 41.5 degrees Celsius, leading to a mesmerizing weather phenomenon which occurs in frigid areas when fine ice crystals are suspended in mid-air. The view also lowered visibility to less than 100 meters, forcing drivers to go easy on the accelerator. Traffic police and street cleaners also worked in high gear to minimize safety hazards.
