Thierry Cohen made these by combining the daylight pics of the cities and the pristine skyline of the desert at the same latitude, direction, and angle. He wants to show what city dwellers would see without all the light pollution...so cool!!
This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it's the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover. #Meteorology #Weather #Clouds
