Something new is on the horizon
It’s a new dawn. It’s a new capsule. Horizon celebrates where the Earth’s surface meets the sky.
What inspired the Horizon capsule?
From Santorini to Hawaii, we love a good sunset. The Horizon capsule is inspired by the world’s most beautiful horizons—the illusive line where the Earth’s surface meets the sky. From sunrise to sunset and every beautiful moment in between, the capsule tracks the sun’s path below the horizon in all its ombre glory.
How do sunsets happen?
A red sky at night isn’t actually down to your local shepherd’s delight, but a phenomenon known as Rayleigh scattering. The same phenomenon is also what makes the sky appear blue during the day.
Sunlight contains all the colors of the rainbow, but not all the colors reach the ground in the same concentration. This comes down to the wavelength of the light and the size of the particle. When the sun is low on the horizon at sunset and sunrise, sunlight has to pass through more air, which scatters the blue and violet light, leaving those glorious yellow, orange and red hues we can’t get enough of.
