Description

Afternoon thunderstorms create the best conditions in Bodie! This one was a real gully-washer, leaving deep puddles all over town. Fortunately afternoon convection shuts down when the sun sets, and any remaining clouds tend to drift away while they also disperse, so we get perfectly clear skies at night. On this night we had clear skies and green airglow after the rain, rainbows, sun rays and colorful sunset in Bodie!
