Spectacular Sunset

Last night's sunset was pretty fantastic. Alas, I didn't have my camera handy to grab an image, so instead I give you this vintage sunset picture:

This image was featured on the cover of the Palomar Pictorial book which is sadly now long out of print.

What makes for a good sunset or sunrise? Clouds: the bane of astronomers. Last nights clouds were courtesy of tropical storm Linda and its cirrus clouds which are now blowing our way.
