These two suns appeared in the clear sunset sky of Mutare, Zimbabwe on December 11, 2015.
Yes these lucky guys had a double sunset last Thursday…
On December 11, 2015, Peter Lowenstein witnessed another double sunset event in drought-sicken Zimbabwe.
The second sun formed as our star was setting behind a cumulus cloud in an almost clear and dry sky.
The diffuse duplicate appeared above the cumulus in a thin veil of more distant high cloud.
But this incredible nature spectacle only lasted for over a minute before the optical illusion faded away.
The four pictures were taken between 18.07 and 18.08 LT.
But the mechanism behind the two suns will probably remain a mystery for a few days…
