The photo above shows a magnificent sunset as observed from Lisbon, Portugal on October 1, 2016. Altocumulus clouds, covering nearly the entire sky, reflect reddened sunlight back to the surface; the shorter wavelength colors have already been scattered from our view. Shadowing and patches of blue sky intensify this lively sunset.
