Rare Anti-Crepuscular Rays

Uploaded by: BettyFrance

Wednesday September 11, 2013

Stoughton, WI (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I heard they existed and I finally saw and photographed them. Sunrise. But I am facing west, and rays are coming from the west. AT SUNRISE! And there is a hint of a rainbow in the south. Behind me and above me is a huge very black cloud, but there is a bit of sun trying to shine near the horizon. It is 7ish. Sprinkling a bit. This was such a joyful sight!
