Viewed from the nw side of Owenreagh, the dying rays of a summer solstice sun break out behind cloud. The irregular flat backed summit on the skyline is Muckish in the Derryveaghs which is some 53km away - just 20 minutes earlier it was all but invisible in bluish haze.

How come we can see so far? There can be a period of curious clarity around sunset and sunrise where the sunlight is reddish.

Going a little deeper into it: haziness is caused by scattering of light and there are two main sorts of scattering: Mie and Rayleigh. This red-light clarity only works when the atmospheric conditions are such that there isn't much Mie scattering. Mie scattering is caused by larger particles and mist which affects red and blue light in much the same way. The Rayleigh or small particle scattering which caused the earlier haze mostly affects bluer light so when the light from the sun is mostly red there isn't much scattering and hence there is better clarity.

Whatever about the science it was a gorgeous view. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/839/comment/3191/
