A beautiful pink and orange sunset washed across the Washington, D.C., sky last night. Wispy, high-level cirrus clouds provided the perfect canvas for the sun’s fading rays.

It was a stunning addition to the National Menorah lighting on the first night of Hannukah.

Sunrise this morning was similarly stunning. Thanks to everyone who woke up early and shared their photos with us on Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Twitter!
