Stunning sunset déjà vu in Washington, D.C. (pictures + time-lapse)

On Monday, we enjoyed a spectacular sunset as clouds retreated along a departing front in the evening sky.  Then, on Tuesday evening, the clouds reversed course and stepped back on stage, producing another unforgettable sunset show.

CWG photographer Kevin Ambrose captured Tuesday’s rousing curtain call performance in time-lapse:

Here are some beautiful images from Capital Weather Gang readers, contributed via our Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr feeds:
