  1. Great series RG! I love the layering of the clouds. 🙂

    (Nerd Alert!)

    Did you know that what you see is not what is there? – When you see the sun just peeping over the horizon it is actually 2-3 degrees below the horizon and we see it because the sun’s light is bent ‘down’ as it passes through the atmosphere so we can actually see below the horizon!

    Then there is the delay due to the sunlight travelling 93 million miles or so to reach our eyes which means what we are seeing ‘now’ is where the sun was nearly 8 minutes ago, so in ‘reality’ it is even further below the horizon than as calculated. As far as the sun, moon and stars are concerned we get to see everything in ‘delay’ similar to how some TV/radio ‘live’ shows are held in delay so they can cut any inappropriate stuff before it goes to air.

    Space is weird! 😉 But then, so is our ‘reality’. 🙂
