An inversion air layer next to the sea surface caused the top of the setting solar disc to acquire unusual shapes. In a matter of tens of seconds, it went from a saucer to a cup, then to a parallelepiped, followed by an inverted cup and finally to a broken inverted cup. A Sony DSC-HX300 camera was used for the shots, taken from 21:39 to 21:41 UT.

Thank you. These are great and the image is incredible. As in, Mark Rothko does sunset. Consider:

Orange and Yellow-3 or

No. 301 (Reds and Violet over Red/Red and Blue over Red), 1959 or even - or especially -

Blue orange red
