Mist is a phenomenon caused by small droplets of water suspended in air. It can occur as part of natural weather or volcanic activity, and is common in cold air above warmer water, in exhaled air in the cold, and warm air in a sauna.
The only difference between mist and fog is visibility. This phenomenon is called fog if the visibility is one kilometre or less Otherwise it is known as mist. Seen from a distance, mist is bluish, and haze is more brownish
Mist makes a beam of light visible from the side via refraction and reflection on the suspended water droplets.
Mist usually occurs near the shores, and is often associated with fog. Mist can be as high as mountain tops when extreme temperatures are low.
