Tyndall effect creates beautiful sunset over city in China


This is the captivating moment sunlight broke through a blanket of clouds and shone on a city in central China.

Breathtaking footage shows golden rays of light peering through a crack in the cloudy sky in Ji’an City, Jiangxi province on November 11 afternoon. The China Meteorological Administration said the stunning sunset was caused by the Tyndall effect.

The phenomenon happens when smoke and dust scatter light, creating distinct rays that are splayed across the sky.
