Monday morning, March 15, Bloomer residents were greeted by a stunning master piece in the sky. Details from the National Weather Service state that some of the most picturesque clouds occur close to sunrise when they can appear in brilliant yellows, oranges and reds. These bold colors result from the weather phenomenon called Rayleigh and Mie Scattering. Monday morning’s sunrise could be seen across the state of Wisconsin. Top photo, silos on the Larry Vahlenkamp farm in the township of Woodmohr are silhouetted against the morning sky on Monday. Below, the clouds in the sky above a small barn are painted yellow, orange and red by the rising sun. Pictures were taken by Bloomer Advance staff member Tammy LeBakken at her home east of Bloomer.
