That day, the sky was dark blue, sign of an excellent sky quality. On the evening, 15 minutes after the Sunset, the Earth's shadow has appeared, arising slowly to the opposite side of the Sun, occupying the whole left part of this panorama of the Bénodet Bay (see this panorama realized last year in broad daylight). This gray-blue area, highlighted with pink, is called anticrepuscular arch, or more poetically the Belt of Venus.
In this picture, one can see also the inclination of the Earth's shadow which appear above the right cape closing the bay, and culminate above the shore located at the far left.
The field of this panorama is about 220 degrees!
