As residents know, California is a winter wonderland not only for its balmy temps but also its sunsets, which tend to be more colorful than the summer variety. Thursday was a prime example. I’ve included a few photos and a video of Thursday’s display. The photo at the end shows you this one’s humble beginnings, but the key was a cloud layer that became an awesome canvas for a natural lightshow after the sun went down. Fascinating stuff.
And would you believe it came from this humble beginning?
What appeared to be your postcard California sunset turned into something unique and special Wednesday night thanks to a thin cloud that created a halo effect. Watch the sun gain separation and then really shine.
