Look at that! Last Monday, there was a ‘split sunset’ in the sky over Kelowna, Canada. Yes the sky was just divided in two, a grey and a colored side. And this unprecedented phenomenon – at least for me – left local skywatchers and photographers spellbound.
People were treated to the bizarre sight of a split sunset as the sun ducked behind distant terrain in Kelowna on Monday night.
Pictures of the so-called “sunset split” were sent by a viewer to Global News Tuesday morning, and they show what almost looks like “before” and “after” pictures Photoshopped side-by-side.
This strange sky phenomenon was most likely due to a terrain feature blocking part of the sun’s rays. But what is so big to hide half of the sun?
