Consumed by the Advancing Night

Night overtakes the storm 1

Looking eastward into the advancing night, the terminator approaches from the horizon. The last light of sunset illuminates a solitary stormy cluster.

Night overtakes the storm 2

Nearing the storm, the illuminated mass shrinks as the earth’s shadow grows and the terminator approaches.

Night overtakes the storm 3

The terminator gradually overtakes us and the night consumes the storm as the last small sliver of sunlight vanishes.
