The cast of an unusual brightly colored sky caught my attention early in the morning of Monday, July 18, 2016. The entire sky featured an eerie yellowish-orange hue caused by the rising sun catching gathering rain clouds. The sun's thin opening slot was blocked about ten minutes later, ending the spectacle and heavy rain followed within the hour. The top (panorama) image looks east at 5:34 am CDT on Brentwood Drive NE in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
