RE:Illusion explanation

Submitted by: Arthur Howard at Tue Aug 12 19:17:02 2003 UTC

This is a diagram to explain the phenomenon taking place in the "Illusion" picture in my gallery.. A retired oceanographer friend of mine in Russia sent it to me.Thanks Andrew. I guess I was lucky to get the shot because conditions have to be perfect and are fairly rare.Has anyone else got any pictures of this phenomonon? Here in short is his explanation:: "I'm sure about stratification zone above. The plain cloud tops speak about. So darker sky is due to light coming from space and lighter sky is formed by rays coming from sunset."

I got this picture when I lived in northern White Mtns. in NH about 9 years ago.. Does anyone know what phenomenon may have caused the sharp cutoff on the color of the sky.You can see the sharp cutoff horizontally across the sky. Again this was as a cold front was moving in.I thought it might be some kind of optical effect due to a severe temperature inversion.

This shot was a lucky one.A cold front had moved in in the late afternoon and the sky was black with clouds at sunset.There was an opening for about 5 minutes and I got this shot. A.R. Howard 2003
