August 9's strange "double" sunset
« on: August 11, 2022, 01:30:00 PM »
The first pic shows the colorful sunset in the west from inside my roof door two nights ago. The unusual thing was that there was something else going on in the eastern sky (second shot). There's only a 3-minute difference between these two shots. If you look at the middle of the top floor of the 417 Main apartment building (tall, in the middle), you can see a simultaneous reflection of the western sky in a window.

The third shot - a blowup of part of the first shot - looks like a funnel cloud going into another cloud.

I can't recall ever seeing something dazzling - other than a rainbow - in the eastern sky at sunset.

Any meteorologists out there with an explanation of these east-west "sunsets"?

Click to enlarge - especially the eastern sky PANO shot (I like the sky reflection on the Second Reformed Church's roof).
