Clean Up on Aisle Three
Once again I find that I have several unrelated tidbits to share.
So let's just go at it, shall we?
I have to say that I've never seen a cat in such a position.
The other day I was trying to take a picture
of one of my peony blooms.
But every time I attempted to take the shot,
a certain cat would jostle my hand.
Click on the picture to see the tell-tale whiskers in the
lower left-hand part of the photo.
I scooted the cat away so I could get a clear shot.
The other evening
the Foodie Daughter ran into in the house
and demanded that we all rush out to the back deck.
This is the sight she wanted us to see.
Can anyone give me an explanation for this phenomenon?
we are facing east-southeast at sunset.
There are clearly rays radiating from the horizon,
but this is directly opposite the position of the setting sun.
There is also a full moon.
Only twice have I witnessed this phenomenon,
both times from this same location
and at roughly the same time of day.
The last photo was taken using the automatic setting.
This photo was taken with the the night time landscape setting.
And this was taken with the sunset setting.
I would dearly love to hear your thoughts on why we
have a "false sunset."
After an embarrassing short Internet search,
I found the answer.
They are anticrepuscular rays.
Huh? Who makes up these words?
I still don't quite understand it, but I'll accept it.
