Sunrise Nova Scotia, Canada
image index
A classical "Omega" miraged sunrise at Hartlen Point Nova Scotia imaged by Shaun Lowe (photography) on 6th March 2005.   The omega, a balloon shaped erect sun above an inverted solar image, was created by refraction between a warmer air layer over the ocean surface and higher, colder air.  The spiky horizon is characteristic of miraged sunsets and sunrises.
