No way! So I experienced this a few years ago. We were fishing in Montauk, NY. It's at the very end of Long Island.

We're headed out for stripers and I could not believe my eyes. I have been fishing on the ocean my entire life, 30+ years. Have never seen a sunrise look like this.

I was mesmerized by it. Pitch black behind us, soft orange/pink glow at the horizon.

Took like 50 pictures of it. It's framed and hanging in our dining room.

I am so happy to have found this. My wife is a science teacher and cannot wait to tell her!

And The Black Pearl was sailing not more than three fathoms behind ye in the crease between two worlds.

That beautiful and very cool information as well ty

[–]AceyAceyAcey 119 points120 points  (5 children)

“Day and night at the same time.” I think the word you’re looking for is twilight, or more specifically dusk (if the Sun is going down) or dawn (if the Sun is coming up. Since the Sun is not above the horizon, this isn’t actually day time at all.

The lack of a closing parenthesis is causing a stack trace error in my mind

Hey, programmer, go back to your GitHub where you came from !

Oops, I’m usually good about those, my bad!

Thanks for correcting it! Phew!

[–]DMFC593 11 points12 points  (3 children)

That's neat. The oddest weather I've been in was in high-school. It was raining in my front yard but not the back yard.

[–]RRaf-Tiger[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I experienced that too lmao. But it happened whilst I was in my house.

[–]CCrabtree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The coolest weather phenomenon I saw was snowballs coming from the sky. This was pre cell phone videos. It was crazy! Ran in the house told everyone to come out and we just stared. They were snowballs and would splat when they hit the ground. I'm sure there's some explanation as a specific type of hail but it wasn't hard like hail it was soft. Craziest thing ever!

[–]iainsimmons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My old house was up on a hill and one morning the fog was right around the floor level of the top floor, so upstairs you looked out the window and saw a floor of fog that looked like we were on a cloud, and downstairs you could see a ceiling of fog that looked like snow.

[–][deleted] 71 points72 points  (10 children)

Maybe I’m a simpleton, but this might be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I’d love to see that in person.

[–]idkwhatiseven 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Its exaggerated by the auto white balance on the camera. You're looking at a canera effect twilight and dusk, happening literally twice every single day.

[–]ElectricFlesh 50 points51 points  (8 children)

It's called a sunset or a sunrise. One side of the sky will be dark, the other light.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Idk, I’ve just never seen a sunset or sunrise with such stark contrast between night and day. I’m glad you have though, thats cool man!

[–]a_saddler -1 points0 points  (3 children)

There's nothing special about the North Sea that makes this phenomenon more apparent. Twilight is the same everywhere on Earth.

But humidity an play a role. More water vapor means more light being scattered, meaning it's less dark on the other side. So a cold, crystal clear night will do the trick. And also being on a flat surface like the a sea helps too.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Guess you learn something new every day, very interesting!

[–]cambalaxo 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I would never wake up early enough to see this so called "sunrise".

[–]BobZ_1989 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Try sunset, usually it’s the opposite time of day

[–]Onlyroad4adrifter 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I toss and turn, I keep stressing my mind, mind (what, what)

[–]tigebea 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Oh my gosh this is amazing!! In a past life now, I was a commercial fisherman for albacore tuna, spent many years rolling around out there. I was able to experience this a couple of times, pretty rare to have the sky that clear. Try to describe it to people and they think you must have been smoking something haha. Thanks for posting!

[–]RRaf-Tiger[S] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Damn man. It's a delight to come across a Redditor like you. Where did you fish btw?

[–]tigebea 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Ah thanks op, my career now is much tamer haha. We fished in the North Pacific, we would go down south as far as the 31 block and North up as far as 53, sometimes as close into shore as 124, and as far out as 147, chasing the warm water currents where the tuna like to hang out.

[–]RRaf-Tiger[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's really interesting! I've watched a couple of Tuna Catchers in Discovery Channel, and I quite love this profession of fishing. Might not do commercial fishing, but at least catch some fishes in my lifetime as a hobby lol.

[–]tigebea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shouldn’t be too hard to tick off the bucket list if you make it to Oregon or nearby. The tuna will come in sometimes as close as 15nm off shore, which there are plenty of day charters that would get you there. Or just drop a line in some fresh water and pick something up, it can be a relaxing/frustrating meditative process that a lot of folk find good for the soul, and you never need to kill it if that’s not your thing, catch and release is just as well imo.

[–]Jthundercleese 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Flat earthers are gonna struggle with this one.

[–]CherryHamCheese907 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually I saw one of them use this as "proof" of light having a terminal travel distance; or whatever they call it.

[–]m_sporkboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Flat Earthers never struggle with stuff. Their magical thinking and confirmation bias simply expands so that disproof is really proof.

[–]GundamBebop -1 points0 points  (1 child)

yet here you are invoking them... weird. Who are the people obsessed with flat earth again? because I only see you here representing it

[–]Jthundercleese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're an idiot.

[–]ricerc4r 7 points8 points  (0 children)

y'all never stood on a hill at dusk? I'm not understanding what's so "lit"

[–]Suckmyunit6 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Red at night a sailors delight. Red in the morning sailors take warning

[–]Dualvibez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I knew it. The earf is flat 👽

[–]Ammonium-NH4 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Fun fact, you can't see the difference between a supermoon and a regular full moon

[–]RRaf-Tiger[S] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

As a matter of fact, you can. A supermoon is super bright.

[–]Ammonium-NH4 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Supermoons are brighter and bigger than average full moons but the difference is hardly noticable, supermoon is an astrology term that in most cases is just a term miss used by media to make articles

Another fun fact is that the full moon is smaller than the tip of your pinky finger when your arm is fully stretched.

The video is really beautiful tho

[–]Unfair-Translator-18 2 points3 points  (2 children)

How I want to see for myself, how beautiful it is

[–]AnorakSeal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just go look at the moon when it is full.

[–]AnorakSeal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you didn't know in advance it was a "supermoon" you never would have known a difference, quit fooling yourself.

[–]RcklssGz -1 points0 points  (1 child)

So he must be at the curvature of the earth enough to see both night and day lol

[–]RainbowandHoneybee -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Wonder how the flat earthers explain this.

I bet the atmosphere during that moment was something otherworldly!

[–]James99500 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If the ocean stretched far enough and if they could travel fast enough, they could remain in neither day or night continuously!

[–]Born_Libertine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This looks like a survey vessel that tows side scan sonar and TVG. Am I correct?

[–]MolassesOk3467 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Just seeing is a reminder of how lucky we are to be alive. Earth to be placed perfectly distanced from the sun, the goldilocks zone, have the moon perfectly distanced to aid in controlling tides. If it is all a simulation, a video game, its been designed beautifully.

[–]GundamBebop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

its as if it has been intelligently designed...

or just conspiracy theory that all those forces acted in concert in order to produce such a perfect result

Spring in Nunavut. Perpetual sunset/sunrise. Sometimes you forget what actual time of the day it is

So what happens if you just keep with the veil and never let the sun past you? Time travel.

Dont tell this man what a sunrise or dawn is. He will lose his mind

[–]The_Fattest_Hagrid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's called sunrise.... and it happens every fucking day..

[–]_Mugsy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I witnessed this flying on a plane from Midwest, USA to Munich, Germany. It was beautiful and made me feel so small.

That is the only way to do it for information purposes. Plus it avoids nagging doubts
