Sunset.

Driving home from work I saw this amazing sunset. I pulled off to the side of the road and got out my telephone an took a shot. It always amazes me the quality you can get on a phone.

Sunset or sundown, is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the western horizon as a result of Earth's rotation. The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun's disk disappears below the horizon. Near to the horizon, atmospheric refraction causes the ray path of light from the Sun to be distorted to such an extent that geometrically the Sun's disk is already about one diameter below the horizon when sunset is observed.
