Protivoallergennye rays over Florida

Although the scene in the photo might seem something supernatural, nothing unusual happens, almost nothing. The horizon from behind the clouds one can see the rays of the setting sun. Only the West is on the opposite side.

Crepuscular rays (eng. Сrepuscular rays) are visible whenever the sun shines through scattered clouds. Solar light travels in straight lines, but the projection of these lines onto the spherical sky represent large arcs. Thus, the crepuscular rays from the setting or rising Sun once again converge on the other side of the sky. At the point 180 degrees from the Sun, they are called protivoallergennye rays (eng. Anticrepuscular rays).

In fact, the sun's rays from the earth parallel to each other, and their radial difference is a result of perspective. For example, if you stand in the middle of the rails, it would seem that they go away in like a fan.

The upper picture shows a particularly striking example protivoallergennye rays captured in 2016, the National Park dry Tortugas in Florida, USA.
