July 28, 2003
I walked out the door, had one quick look at the sky, and it was evident that this was no ordinary sunset. The above photo was taken at 9:10 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on July 7, 2003 in Caledon, Ontario, Canada. The sky actually looked like it was on fire. While the brilliant red color lasted for only a few minutes, I had just enough time to grab my camera and tripod. The next day at work, co-workers were all saying "Did you see the sunset last night?" Interestingly, it was observed over a fairly large area -- some people who witnessed this incredible sunset live more than 100 kilometers apart.
