Aw man. I was out of town on the 5th but flew through the batch of storms on the 6th; very unsettling.
I wonder if this effect is caused by the altitude of the clouds and precipitation still being illuminated by sunlight even though at sea level the sun
has set. Probably extremely rare but still possible.
The same effect when a plane takes off around sunset, when on the ground it is dark, but as they climb it gets light again until the sunsets for them
at their horizon at altitude.
