Second Sun
Wisconsin, on Feb 18, 2004

For many days now, sunrise is the same reddish pink color just before actual sunrise. I have many pictures of this strange coloration. On Wednesday Feb 18, 30 minutes before sunrise looking east, I took a few more, and captured what may be the source of the color. I use a 3.2 mgp, Olympus. Here is the object, cropped, and Gamma turned way down.
