Pink Virga

March 19, 2021


Photographer: Juan Manuel Pe'rez Rayego
Summary Authors: Juan Manuel Pe'rez Rayego; Jim Foster

The gauzy, pinkish veil shown above at right center is actually rain
falling through the atmosphere, as observed near Merida, Spain.
The Sun had been behind these stratocumulus clouds for several
minutes prior to the photo being snapped. At first glance, it looked
like a pink mist was falling, and then I realized that this
precipitation likely wasn’t reaching the ground ( virga), as the
air near the surface was quite dry. Photo taken at sunset on
November 9, 2020.
