Spooky sunset...

We often have sunsets that look like this - an ominous, solid mantle of clouds with just a sliver of bright sky streaking through the middle. It always freaks me out, because it reminds me of the scene in "Independence Day", where the humongous alien space ship appears and fills the entire sky except for a little strip of light underneath it.

At the same time, just to the south-east, the sky was clear, with just a touch of the dark, threatening cloud, and the bright moon looking hopeful. It's now totally dark, the cloud has expanded further east, and the moon is gone... probably won't see it for a while, as rain is promised tonight, tomorrow and beyond.
