This spectacular example of crepuscular rays was seen from a train window just outside Glasgow.
Crepuscular rays are parallel, of course, and are caused by clouds casting shadows in the air. Rather more rare are anticrepuscular rays, seen converging towards the antisolar point (opposite the sun). We're keeping our eyes open.
