Did you see it Sunday night? A thunderstorm shadow at sunset

Storm Team Headlines

The setting sun being blocked by thunderstorms off to the west, cast a shadow in the sky over CNY Sunday evening, 7-28-19. This photo was taken by Mika Cushing.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) I noticed this Sunday evening, and I was glad that there was a photo posted on our Facebook page.

This photo taken by Mika Cushing, taken close to sunset, shows a shadow from a thunderstorm well to our west.

The light from the setting sun was blocked by the storms to our west. The shadow was cast onto dust and haze in the atmosphere, creating the dark zone in the sky.

Pretty cool to see.
