The picture was snapped by a worker at Yamburgskoe oil and gas condensate field.
The amazing phantom city was pictured from Yamburgskaya gas-compressor station some 150 kilometres above the polar circle.
The temperature here was reported to be a bone-chilling minus 50C.
Nearest city Novy Urengoy with a 115,000 population is some 130 kilometres to the south.

The mirage is believed to be a Fata Morgana, most commonly seen in polar regions.
This involves a thermal inversion .
It is known as a complex form of superior mirage seen in a narrow band immediately above the horizon.
The curvature of the light rays within the inversion layer is stronger than the curvature of the Earth.

Awesome!   smallawesome

I have heard of the Fata Morgana before, but that is the first time I've ever seen a photo of it.

Fascinating!
