Beautiful sky - ugly astronomy

This was the summit scene a few minutes after sunset tonight: beautiful red clouds but a sky so thick with them that we have little chance of taking any data.

Just like a painting; absolutely beautiful.

Tom, that's a lovely picture. Mauna Kea is one of my favorite places on Earth. May you always have good viewing. :-)

Thanks Protege and Frances, and also thanks for stopping by, Frances. I had a quick look at your blog and it's very good!

Hope you both like the pictures in my recent post (red sky at night). More pictures from last night of one of the most stunning sunsets I've seen in a while.
