Beautiful Sunset Tonight In Alexandria, Virginia 

Sunsets often have a red or orange color to them. Why is this? Sunlight (what we call “white light”) is made up of all different colors of light, each having a different wavelength. During a sunset, more red light is scattered toward you because of aerosols in the lower atmosphere, compared to the amount of blue or green light that is scattered.
