    Solar Wrinkles

    Photograph by Tho Le Duc, My Shot

    A “squashed tomato” sun rises over Vietnam's Quang Ngai beach in a picture recently submitted to National Geographic’s My Shot.

    The solar disk can appear distorted when it’s near the horizon, because its light is being refracted—or bent—by more of Earth’s atmosphere. Similarly, rising and setting suns often appear redder because the thicker atmospheric layers scatter more blue light, leaving mostly red wavelengths.
