There's a technical name for this, but I can't remember what it is - the shadow beams from when the sun sets behind a mountain or mountain range. Happens around August 8 in the Yakima valley when the sun sets behind Rainier.

I can't remember if I ever saw a shadowbeam or not, but I think I have. Anyway, they are cool.

I wasn't allowed to eat them, so I hid some under my pillow and ate them in the dark. I forgot one or two and woke up with my face and hair stuck to my sheet.
