Nicholasville, KY
Details:
Canon PowerShot A630, 1/15 second exposure. Very bizarre pinkish purple streamers. There were no clouds of any kind within hundreds of miles to the west. These are absolutely not cirrus clouds. Satellite image attached when sunset was imaged shows this. I think these are streamers from the volcanic ash cloud. Venus also im image.
