Both today’s sunrise and sunset were so fantastic, it’s hard to say which was better.  The blend of open sky and clouds at dawn and dusk alike allowed for magnificent views all around the region.

Here’s a small sample of hundreds of photo submissions we received from readers.  Thanks to all for sharing these beautiful views of the sky and our region.
