Sometimes there are just no words. Sometimes there is just a tree and a setting Sun and a sky that turns from a bright yellow to a deep orange. The Film Artist made this video, Be Sunset Tree, and it’s just majestic. How the Sun crosses the tree, how the tree seemingly cradles the light, and how the sky looks like it’s on fire.
Here’s a really cool visualization from astronomer Scott Manley that shows what our sky might look like if we could actually see all the asteroids. Asteroids aren’t visible to the naked eye because they’re too small to register but Manley was able to reveal the known asteroids and speed them up to exaggerate how they would look in real life.
Don’t worry, there is nothing unnatural about that strange arcs of light you’ll sometimes see in the sky. Ice halos are a very natural atmospheric phenomenon, created when ice crystals suspended in the sky reflect and refract sunlight. But they truly are an impressive sight.
