Belt of Venus

An atmospheric phenomenon seen at sunrise and sunset. Shortly after sunset or shortly before sunrise, the observer is, or is very nearly, surrounded by a pinkish glow (or anti-twilight arch) that extends roughly 10°–20° above the horizon. The arch's light pink color is due to backscattering of reddened light from the rising or setting Sun.
