Arizona Sunsets - Gallery 3

One of the nicest things about living in the desert is that we have beautiful sunsets. Often, you'll see wonderful colors in the sky when it is clear with high clouds -- we have lots of days like that! I invited visitors to About.com Phoenix to submit photos that they have taken of beautiful Arizona sunsets. If you would like to submit one, here is how you do it. Please let me know the general area where the photo was taken.

Supermoon, Sept. 27, 2015
Werner Rodorff, used with permission

From the photographer: "I took this photo yesterday evening during the lunar eclipse. It shows the Bloodmoon over the McDowell Mountains, taken at Scottsdale Quarter."

It wasn't a sunrise, a sunset or even a rainbow. On September 27, 2015 we were able to see a Supermoon Lunar Eclipse. It is rare that we see a Supermoon (also called a Super Blood Noon, a full moon at its closest point to Earth) and a lunar eclipse at the same time; the next time we'll be able to see it is in 2033.
