Tonight’s weather conditions suggested that the sunset would be enjoyable, but not necessarily extraordinary.  Surprises happen all the time, and this was one of them.

Here’s a slightly different view at about the same time.

If you face west at Clark Lake, you get to see sunsets.  If you face east, sunrises.  Tonight, facing east shared the bounty of tonight’s sunset, too.   Ann Swain captured these three views during the sunsets phases, starting with the earliest.
