Stormy Evenings’ Atmospherics


On the evening of 6/14 a rainbow formed to the east, as a rain shower passed overhead, moving from west to east. These evening rain showers are a regular occurrence in the summer, and especially during our “monsoon” season, which begins in early July and continues to the end of summer. And rainbows usually accompany these showers, with the rain moving to the east while the sun sets in the west.

On the evening of 6/16 a stormy sky lit up the Pilar Cliffs, to the east, and the clouds to the west and north.
