Lots of Sunset Pics

Lots of pics from the weekend that I didn't have time to post. First, Saturday night. Sun set nicely behind Kitt Peak. The Sun was kind of split when it set over the peak producing two very bright green flashes, easily visible and two of the brighter ones I have seen in a while.

Now Sunday night. Look closely at the top of the Sun. See the little piece that appeared to break off? Those are mock mirages. Again, a very nice sunset, just missing the telescopes on Kitt Peak.

Obviously I am done getting the behind Kitt Peak photos for a while. The Sun is setting farther south each night until the winter solstice. I will get another chance in early February when the Sun sets behind Kitt Peak on its journey north toward the Summer solstice.

Great pictures, hale. I can see a sunrise pretty easily here, but no gorgeous sunsets.

Nice images of Kit peak.
See if you can catch the ufo.s in your next photo set.
