Volcanic sunset on April 16th looking west over the Sperrin Mountains from Maghera. The Sun sports a faint 15 degree pillar. Within the vicinity of the Sun are 'cirrus-like' strips of cloud which looked like NLC bands visually, these have been visible for the last two evenings. Those bands are ash clouds which have been confirmed by atmospheric expert Les Cowley. They are located in the Troposphere. These strips were complimented by a 1.5 hour, orange, low elevation afterglow.
