Crazy Gradient in the Sky
This is what I saw the sky looking like one day. I happened to be on a plane, flying from Anchorage, AK to Fairbanks, AK. And I saw this crazy gradient, where the sky nearest the horizon was bright, going to a darker blue with increasing altitude, and then after reaching that dark band, it started to go light again. How did this happen?!? What is going on?!?
This sky does not look natural to me. I promise the photos are showing a true view of what the sky Actually looked like. I think these were taken at something like 8 AM local time, February 27 (ish).
