Crepuscular and Antisolar Rays on June 23rd, 2016

After sunset, faint crepuscular and antisolar rays spanning the whole sky could be observed. In fact satellite photos showed shadows cast by an approaching western cloud front that were hundreds of kilometers long - almost covering the the whole republic. Antisolar rays, also called anti-twilight rays or anti-crepuscular rays, are actually parallel columns of light and shadow cast by distant clouds emanating from the antisolar point. The fan-like appearance is due to perspective.
