This strange and baffling Two suns phenomenon is not only happening in Indonesia.

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.
