Sunrise on 7-24-15

I saw this beautiful, unusual sunrise on my early morning walk. Then on the evening news, they showed a photo of the sunset, which was very much the same. They gave the name of the clouds causing this unusual occurrence, and it seemed to be something like "hermulocus", but I have been unable to find any work like that associated with the clouds. Maybe some of you can help me identify them.

I have learned from @danette that these are called "crepuscular rays." Thank you Danette.
