Two Views of This Morning’s Sunrise

Our usual air pollution, plus some extra dust courtesy of strong winds lately, have produced some especially great celestial views around here.

I just finished Arthur C. Clarke’s science fiction classic Rendezvous With Rama, and chapter one concerns an asteroid strike that destroys the Mediterranean Sea but, the story says, the whole world enjoyed the most beautiful sunrises ever for the next six months.

I really like how the rays not only leap out from behind clouds here, but clearly shoot down in front of the mountains.
