It was late afternoon and we were
driving along the open space of Candelaria bypass road when we noticed
something unusual about the sky. The left side of the sky was dark, while the
right side is bright and they are clearly divided in the middle. We decided to
park beside the road to take a picture.
We do not have our DSLR, but we
have our gadgets. I gave my iPhone 5 to my wife beside me, and she took a few
pictures. I scanned the sky and noticed that the sun was setting on our right. I
have no idea what we are seeing. It was as if something big was blocking the
rays of the sun and casting a shadow on the left side of the sky. It could be
the horizon covering part of the sun, but why do we not see this every day? We
moved on since it is about to get dark.
Here are a few more re-sized, but
unedited pictures. I tried to search the
web for something similar, but I cannot find any.
