Congratulations John. Also glad to see that the street lighting seems to have full cut off fixtures.

Looks like "shallow dome" to me. Full cutoff fixtures would have no visible light from that angle.

Thanks all, unfortunately Brian you are right, they are "shallow dome" and a real pain if there is the slightest haze.

Congratulations John!. It's amazing to think these volcanic sunsets are still occurring. Hopefully we will see a few more when the sky clears again. I wonder if they will last until the Summer?. Those post sunset glows and NLCs would make a great image.

Thanks Martin, don't know, there was a good amount of sulpher and ash fired up into the stratosphere so they could do. For those up early enough to catch the sunrise it might be worth while keeping an eye on it as well.
