Rays Across the Sky   -  By: Babak A. Tafreshi

Seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day, this 360 panoramic view before sunrise shows Mount Kilimanjaro, seen from Kenya's Amboseli National Park, an acacia tree, Moon and Venus and spectacular display of crepuscular rays on the left (east). Rare to see so clearly are the anticrepuscular rays at the same time on the other horizon (west). These cloud shadows (formed by sunlight shining through clouds on the horizon) are very nearly parallel, but converge in the distance because of perspective.
