Strange beams of light in the sky of Moscow at sunset

7

While enjoying a spectacular sunset over Moscow many residents noticed something unusual going on on Ascension Day.

Light beams scattered by clouds in front of the setting Sun appeared to re-converge behind the horizon.

The striking photos of the unusual astronomical phenomena were spotted in the sky above Moscow on Ascension Day 2017.

After investigating, meteorological experts think the bizarre pathway was created by a combination of sunbeams ‘cast from over the horizon,’ clouds high in the sky and shadows.

Meteorologists have a technical term for this beautiful but rarely seen phenomenon: crepuscular rays.

The sun is dim but still shining on parts of the cloud high up, but the dark blue section is due to shadows being cast.

The shadows are most likely caused by clouds which can’t be seen from the observer’s point of view due to the curvature of the earth.

Although the Sun’s rays strike the Earth almost parallel to one another, we see them appear to come from a point because at a distance, parallel lines seem to converge, like railway lines disappearing over the horizon.

Hae you ever managed to photograph such iery rays in the sky? via Instagram

So-called crepuscular rays are the rays that appear when parallel solar beams are redirected through clouds and appear to diverge.

In this case, they were almost covering the entire sky.

Anticrepuscular beams appear at the other end of the sky from crepuscular beams. They converge on the horizon at exactly 180 degrees from the place where the beams appear to come from.

According to the pictures above, it is difficult to say if we are witnessing crepuscular or anti-crepusculars rays. Anti-crepuscular rays are not common, especially rare and dramatic examples like these.

  1. The key to understanding this effect is to break out of the programming that hinders comprehension.
    There are thousands of pictures showing how sunlight comes down through cloud-cover at a variance of converging angles. The area of convergence is of course the Sun, and is clearly NOT millions of miles away, but rather relatively close to Earth just above the clouds.
    Do some research on this and you’ll see you’ve been fooled.

    • Yes. As soon as I saw these pics, I thought of several solid flat Earth videos, then I see your post and know somebody else is thinking too. Why do almost all world mythos/religions (which may indeed be history, evidenced but not noted by scientists today), all clearly show the world as a flat plane, from the Bible, to the Vedas which are much more ancient, scientific in fact, and contain much more information explaining already what scientists today are just supposedly discovering and taking credit for; especially in astro and quantum physics lol. What a joke that is played on people. To be certain, the Vedas clearly describe both the Earth as a flat plane, and a simultaneous holography including globular experience. From my research and experience(s) the Earth plane is flat with a holographic globular feature and holographics, even a soul. These pictures give weight to the idea the Sun is much closer, much smaller, and indeed in an orbit above the Earth plane with the Moon, similar to the Yin Yang and other symbols sacred and known to ancient civilization. Perhaps theism prevents the atheistic scientist from even looking at the Vedas, Bible, other world scriptures/histories, I can understand that prejudice, but it doesn’t seem scientific at all. Rather shouldn’t, like the scientist I am, research, and test the science presented in the Vedas and elsewhere?! Yes. On the other hand you have ancient astronaut theorists similarly turning to ancient sources, but NOT presenting those sources “as it is”, without scholars who accurately translate and represent the scriptural sciences, again people are duped by false science. In that case, a picture may be worth… then again, it’s the digital age. Good thing I got hard copies.

  2. I actually saw rays just like that where I live just last week. I was driving, so didn’t take a pic. I wish I would have now.

  3. Those aren’t beams. Those are giant CLAW MARKS. Somebody wants to get in, wake up his demons in the ground, and start WORLD WAR III. Wonder who that could be?
