It's a shadow from objects very low on the horizon...

Or, the shadow of an alien craft about to begin the invasion...

Cool pics in either case

Things from miles away can cast shadows in the sky at sunset.

Wow that's pretty creepy. I've never seen anything like that and I live East of some of the largest buildings on the planet and they don't "cast shadows" on the sky, as another poster suggested. Hmmm?

This is certainly a shadow.

This link will explain it for you.

As the sun rises farther south during winter solstice (between fall and winter), it comes to a perfect position casting its first morning rays behind the volcano thus creating an unforgettable sunrise scene: Mount Rainier casting an upside-down shadow on the cloudy sky above. This phenomenon only happens when environmental conditions are perfect, with chances hopefully higher (we’re crossing our fingers) than that of the volcano actually erupting.

Or this link

cloudappreciationsociety.org...

Have you ever noticed cloud-shaped shadows creeping over the ground on a sunny day? These can be cast by drifting Cumulus, as they are swept overhead in the breeze. Such shadows are a pleasing connection between sky and land. They might even catch the attention of those poor individuals who, blind to the beauty of the sky, walk around staring at their feet.

But the most dramatic and spectacular cloud shadows don’t actually reach the ground at all. They are the ones cast from one part of the sky to another.

You can’t beat cloud shadows to give a sense of perspective and scale to the atmosphere. Take these majestic ones cast at sunrise from the line of Cumulus towers on the horizon in November’s Cloud of the Month. Here the shadows aren’t cast down onto the ground, but onto a layer of Altocumulus, through which the Cumulus summits have grown.

The effect is rather like when you use your hands to make shadow shapes on the wall. But we are very pleased to say that the cloud version is considerably more beautiful and, in contrast to our own, it doesn’t inevitably end up producing the shape of bunnies, flying doves, or some mutant hybrid of the two.

Sometimes the colour of the sky in my area does this. A really crazy blue. Only when the sun is setting. Last not very long about 15-20 minutes. When this happens the clouds are very pink.

Clearly a shadow. Not sure what the issue is.

We get straight lines on some edges, not all the time. I thought it was just wind currents blowing the straight bits. Anyway to me I have seen this heaps of times, and although awesome to look at, I've seen this a lot.
But awesome pics.
I may have some pics of the same sort of thing , I'll have a hunt for them.

Beautiful sunset. I've seen striations like this, but not exactly like this before. Yes they look odd because of the apparent straight edges, but I don't think it's anything to worry about. Like another poster said, could have been something very low on the horizon.

it is not a shadow..


Yes... yes it is
.. another poster provided a clear example with straight lines and all .. and the cloud color differentiation is because of the sun / shadow situation..

It's not COMMON to see this, it depends on conditions and time of year.. consider yourself lucky for getting to see it.

Another example

Aaaand another one
