Can anyone tell me what this is? Looking towards the East Horizon during sunset.

Butch,
A very interesting photo.
If you were looking West at sunset, I would say you are looking at the effect of a cloud on the horizon which is blocking the light on the lower atmosphere above you, causing a reduction of redish light scattered by dust in the sky. The sunlight traveling above the cloud is still causing the upper atmosphere to glow blue.

Hi Butch,

 

I believe Tom is correct.  Your photo is probably a nice example of Anticrepuscular rays.  /jim
