Throwback Thursday

Lake Huron at Dawn

Throwback Thursday travels back to 2003 and an atmospheric phenomenon at dawn.

Visible shortly before sunrise and shortly after sunset the Belt of Venus is a pinkish band above the horizon. It is produced when light from the sun is backscattered by particulates in the air.

In this photo of Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon the blue band directly above the horizon is the earth’s shadow with the Belt of Venus above that.

Thanks John. I had multiple photos of the phenomenon before finding out what it was called. Luckily I have a friend from art school who’s into atmospheric phenomenon amongst other things. I just email him a photo of something and he usually gets back to me within minutes as he knows the answer without having to look it up.
