Did You Catch Thursday Night’s Spectacular Sunset Over North Texas?

The sky at night was big and bright over North Texas Thursday evening.

As fall comes to an end, a gorgeous sunset dominated the sky, filling it with hues of gold, deep purple and bright pink.

For a moment last night, everyone seemed to stop and stare at it. We captured it on camera. While stuck in traffic, we whipped out smartphones to shoot the setting sun. We talked about it. We told our friends and family. And we embraced the moment and admired the scene: "Moments like this remind me that I love Texas," one person said.
