A recent sunset photo stunned viewers. An unusual optical effect made the sunset resemble a split-screen image showing two very different skies side by side.
Though it looks unnatural, the so-called split sunset wasn’t created with filters or Photoshop. Rather, it was caused by the shadow of a large cloud below the horizon that prevented sunlight from striking the clouds that were closer to viewers on the ground. The photo was shot in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
