Photo of the Day: Turn away from the sun and you could see this

POTD - Turn away from the sun and you could see this (Ray Swagerty)

We're usually dazzled by the sun and the pretty picture it paints during sunrises and sunsets. But if you turn your back to the sun, you might be treated to a scene like this.

Ray Swagerty snapped this picture of anti-crepuscular rays in the sky over downtown Charleston. It's a beautiful sight. And it's our Photo of the Day! Thanks for sharing it with us!

According to ABC News 4 Meteorologist Chris Nestman, anti-crepuscular rays appear opposite of the sun. So if your back was to the sun, you could see them. Anti-crepuscular rays looks like they're converging, but it's really just an optical illusion.
