    Very beautiful, Ebon.

    Hey, wait a minute. Isn’t that the Hudson Valley Assemblies of God Our Blessed Lady of the Assumption Snake Handlers Church parking lot? Hmmm. And isn’t that your car hiding in the back row? Hmmmm. And on Sunday, too. Hmmm. I won’t tell…

    Hope things are well with you, my friend.

    Note also that the clouds continue to be directly lit even as the ground becomes dark. Very understandable if the Earth is approximately spherical.

    I’ve seen something similar from an airplane — that vehicle would be directly illuminated and look orangish, while the ground below would not be, and would look dark purple.

    The earth is spherical? Have people been told?

    Simply breathtaking. You’ve got a great eye!
