Nature's Light Shows Were Awesome
Here in the Upper Valley we have logged the month of November in the record books. December is upon us. A look back at the 11th month of the year gives us a collection of sensational sunsets to remember.
This year, for combined factors, the November sunsets were simply amazing and put on a colorful display. So what makes them so colorful at this time of the year? After doing some research with the weather experts, we discover that when the sun sets, the light has to pass through more atmosphere than it does when it is high in the sky.
The sky turns red because the light passes through dust and debris in the atmosphere. They reflect red and orange back at you and that is what you see. The color in the sunset appears to be dependent upon two factors. They are: The angle/position of the Sun and the constituent gases of the atmosphere.
Whatever the reason, this past November kept the Upper Valley Mirror busy at sunset. Photos included here will give you an idea. Enjoy.
