Hi Verite
The phenomena is simply a shadow of the earth, made as the sun sets. But a shadow has to fall onto something to be seen, and here the shadow of the earth is falling on the dust particles in the atmosphere.
thanks for the comments on the other 2 pictures as well.
Where in Russia are you?
We are planning on cycling through Russia as well.
