A colorful Kitt Peak sunset

The view of sunset from Kitt Peak can be quite spectacular.  Of course, a pretty cloud filled sunset does not normally bode well for the nights observing program....

 This Sun Dog was visible at about the same time as the first image.

Just after sunset, this deep red glow was quite spectacular.

Downtown Tucson at night.

While in downtown Tucson one evening, I couldn't help but admire this scene with the tallest building in town lit nicely by the city lights.
