Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 15: Crossing the Pacific Ocean From Hawaii to Japan.
Every day the sunrise at sea is different. It was a windy day, and we were traveling into the wind so the aft decks were safe. At the end of the day, after the sun set there were unique blue colors near the horizon caused by the earth’s shadow with pastel pinks above that are called the “Belt of Venus”. I have seen this before while camping in the mountains, but didn’t know the cause. I really wanted to see if I could capture the colors in an image since they are so subtle.
Individual images in the slide show are available here.
