9:22 PM: Thanks for sharing photos! Laura‘s view from over Beach Drive included the reflection of the sun’s color from high in the sky:

    Tonight’s sunset literally stopped me in my tracks as I walked out onto Beach Drive. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a red sun still so high in the sky.

    Dittoing Zanda. Just stunning photos. My camera phone didn’t do the moon justice.

    I was wondering where the forest fire was.

Sorry, comment time is over.
