Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

I was spellbound at seeing this shadow of the Uetliberg transmitter mast in the sky just before sunset at about 4:30pm on 1st November.

Has anyone else noticed this or know what this effect is called?

Sorry the pictures are sideways, I only took them with a mobile phone camera.

That effect is called "right place at the right time". Much like a solar eclipse, you just happened to observe the shadow within the full umbra. As such, its not an effect...its just a perfect location. And mark the data and the time. It should happen again next year too!

cool photos!!!

I don't know if it has a particular name but here is another good example

Thanks for that reply. I thought maybe it was something other people might have seen before an I just hadn't noticed it personally before. So you mean this umbra is something like an equinox alignment or phase of the sun that only happens once per year like a summer solstice?
Next year I could try to sell tickets (like in Grange in County Sligo Ireland) to just stand in the street. Ha ha.

If you zoom in on the photo you can see a similar shadow effect at the edge of the silhouette outline of the tree tops.

Thanks for saying it was a perfect location, I took the photo from in front of my house. ;-)
I wanted to point the shadow to people in the street as it was so awesome but by the time someone passed it was almost over. It only lasted about 2 or 3 minutes before it became unnoticeable.
But my wife and I got to share the experience.

Wow that picture was absolutely spectacular. Thanks for posting the link.
The Uetliberg tower is smaller (thinner) and it was sunset but it certainly looks like the same stunning effect. America always has to do things bigger ;-)

Taken on the 24th of December 2015 on Christmas Day. Celestial vault opens up to herald arrival of the King. It's like a scene from nativity. Cannot explain it better
