Tim Scullion: Gray storm clouds turn shades of red at sunset in Sedona, Arizona, USA (almost looks like a tornado, but there was no wind, just some spotty rain). In meteorology, virga is precipitation that falls from a cloud but evaporates before reaching the ground, and that’s what this is (except for a few drops). These amazing colors only lasted about 5 minutes, but what a show!
