Following storm, Jerusalem witnesses unique sunset
As Jerusalemites gradually resume normalcy after snow subsides, clean air makes for breathtaking sunset in capital. Storm cleaned air of dust particles, allowing sunrays to paint clouds in various colors, astronomer says
Snowstorm Alexa that hit the Mideast did not only cause power shutdown and unbearable cold, but also, according to experts, cleaned the air of dust particles, thereby allowing sunlight to extraordinarily colorize the clouds.
The storm-ridden Jerusalem witnessed a colorful sunset on Tuesday.

"The storm literally cleaned the air," Dr. Igal Patel, Chairman of the Israeli
Astronomical Association told Ynet. "On a day like today, when there isn't much dust in the atmosphere, you can see blue sunrays, and in the higher layers you can see red rays."
