  1. How have I lived for so long without ever hearing about ANTI-crepuscular rays? We hardly ever have cloudless skies from east to west so I think they'd be pretty rare here. Thanks for the enlightenment.

    1. Steve-- We see crepuscular rays pretty often and that top pic was a grand display. We hardly ever see the anti-crepuscular rays. So that was pretty exciting.
