Strange Sunset
Strange Sunset
Description: I saw this weird glow in the sky and they didn`t look like clouds like those on the horizon. I wondered if there was some kind of moisture in the air reflecting colors of the sunset as it had been a hot and humid day. They disapeared after a few minutes but the clouds on the horizon were still there.

Great shot! -- mmbusch
Very cool. Probably the entire sky would have been that color except for the cloud shadown in the middle. I have been seeing some spectacular sunsets this week as well. -- weathermatrix
W.O.W. -- larryedit
I found some info online at spaceweather.com that this was probably due to aerosols in the stratosphere spewed by the August 7th eruption of the Kasatochi volcano in the Aleutian Islands. There were photos simular to what I have been seeing including one from Kansas -- wildabouthorses
