The wiki says: On Earth, sunlight is filtered through the atmosphere and the solar radiation is obvious as daylight when the sun is above the horizon. When the direct radiation is not blocked by clouds, it is experienced as sunlight - the intense combo of heat and bright light.
We enjoyed some beautiful weather here in rochester this past weekend. Sunlight was ALL around and the clouds were sparse. Today I'm headed to california for work. Looks like more sunny skies lie ahead for me this week and that makes me happy. SUNSHINE is good for the soul.
