Several readers have pointed out recently that Orholam’s Wink–or Neptune’s Wink, as it’s sometimes called–is a real thing. It is a meteorological optical phenomenon that (long story short) happens when sunlight is refracted by our atmosphere at a particular angle. You can see this phenomenon live and in-person… If you’re in the right place. At the right time.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the right place is sea level, and the right time is sunset, or sunrise.
The timing for sunrise is a bit tricky, since you’d need to be staring at the horizon at sea level on a cloudless morning just before the sun begins to peek out over the horizon.
I don’t know about you, but I need more sleep than that. Also I live near a west-facing coast, so watching for the wink at sunrise is…impractical.
The print/online magazine Physics World has an article about this lovely little gift from our atmosphere, shared in 2015.
The article is worth a read; it’s an explanation of the green flash, but it’s also a story from astrophotographer Pete Lawrence. In it he explains, “The atmosphere acts like a prism, refracting different wavelengths by varying amounts.”
A prism, hmmmmm? You think Pete is a Lightbringer fan?
Lauren Melone sent us this photo of her wearing a t-shirt that she designed herself.
I don’t know about y’all, but I NEED one of these shirts! Granted, I won’t look as badass as Lauren does in it, but still. I would wear it almost every day, and on the off days I would hang it somewhere I could see it.
YAAAAAAS! Thanks for sharing, Lauren!
Kip Guile, as fierce as ever:
Another great piece by @gpdavix on Instagram! Check out his other work here.
Karris Whiteoak-Guile, “The Iron White” I wanted to draw her with her Sea Demon bone crown, but I could never really get it the way I picture it from the book, but I tried. Yellow luxin throne, because why not? Haha. #Lightbringer #Karris #Gavin #Prism #BlackPrism #BloodMirror #Throne #Queen #Guile #BrentWeeks

Congrats and thank you to Simon Vance, the talented narrator of The Lightbringer Series. He’s up for a potential 14th win with his narration of The Black Prism. So delighted to be in the company of Brandon Sanderson, Richard Kadrey, Drew Magary, and Naomi Novik!
Inspired by the Night Angel Trilogy:
