West Seattle Weather Watch: Sunset before sun’s return

Thanks to Michael Copeland for the view from North Admiral – as the weather started to transition from our rainy week to the promise of clearer skies ahead.

ADDED: From Alki via Twitter, Angela‘s view:

Many of tonight’s shots included a ferry – like this one from MM:

And this, from Tom Marx:

As the colors intensified, Annika Bowden took this photo:

    Fantastic photos and a good time for a science lesson… When the sun is high in the sky and traveling through less atmosphere, all wavelengths are reaching the observer’s eye and it appears white. As the sun sets the rays of light need to travel through more and more of the earth’s atmosphere where air molecules scatter the shorter wavelengths (blue, indigo, violet). The longer wavelength of light (red, orange, yellow) penetrate and create these stunning visuals. You can see as these photos progress through sunset that the differing wavelengths also progress…yellow to orange to almost red; respective of each color’s wavelength.
