Second Sun
Japan, on Oct 23, 2003

Oct 23 Sunset. Reddish pink allover.
This photo is remarkable as it has a double reflection, and shows two suns there, not a round ball. The slanted reflections are from a second sun source, the first source creating a reflection on the water. The Sun is dented as the occulting is not perfect. A short while later, the suns merge, creating a slightly elongated sun.
