The setting sun appearing as a yellow pyramid with a bright green top and with a tall tower silhouetted in foreground center.

*Sun Pyramid*

Some funky aberrations and distortions in this one.

We had nice seeing in Perth this evening, so I shot a video of the sun setting behind Rottnest island lighthouse from Cottesloe beach. To avoid wind jitter, I setup at the local rugby tavern and asked the players to not kick in my direction. Pretty impressive view through 23 km of atmosphere.
