The sun peeked over the desert horizon to the east.
The sun lingered on the horizon, as if waiting for the closing clouds.
Cassie glanced at Bordeaux, who was watching the horizon apprehensively.
The sun was setting (sunset at 6:45 P.M.), and as soon as it dipped beneath the horizon (just before 7 P.M.) the English ships were silhouetted sharply against the red glow of the western sky, whilst the Germans were scarcely discernible against the gathering night clouds in the east.
In this case the second bow is much fainter, and has its centre as much above the horizon as that of the direct system is below it.
