Most Gorgeous Sunsets In The Whole Entire World

Most Gorgeous Sunsets in the Whole Entire World

The setting sun is more than just a daily ritual—it's an example of just how beautiful the natural world can be. Both tourists and locals travel to certain places specifically to see the spectacular event. Next time you head out to see the sun going down keep in mind that a true sunset occurs a minute or so before you see the sun disappear. The color of the sunset has to do with the way light from the sun enters our atmosphere.
