Sweden 21st December '06.
David Legge took this image at 2:53pm. The sun was 7° below
the horizon having set at 1:10pm.
The nacreous clouds are so
high in the stratosphere that they still catch the sun's rays.
Thw fainter clouds at extreme left show the vertical wave
structure of these clouds that is not usually
so apparent from the ground.
