Strange beams of light in the sky of Moscow at sunset–So-called crepuscular rays are the rays that appear when parallel solar beams are redirected through clouds and appear to diverge

While enjoying a spectacular sunset over Moscow many residents noticed something unusual going on on Ascension Day.

Light beams scattered by clouds in front of the setting Sun appeared to re-converge behind the horizon.
