Anti-Crepuscular Rays

Posted on May 3, 2010


These anti-crepuscular rays were photographed in Florida by Daniel Herron of Woodstock, GA.

Did anyone else see the anti-crepuscular rays this evening as the sun set? I was biking along the ocean tonight, and I saw something similar to the photograph above on the eastern horizon, opposite to where the sun was setting. Crepuscular comes from the Latin meaning “relating to twilight.”
