Golden state

With sunsets like these it’s easy to understand why California is called the Golden State. According to Stephen Corfidi NOAA meteorologist, these colors are no accident. As a region on the earth’s surface rotates away from the sun the extra long wavelengths that remain visible to the human eye at sunset happen to be the orange, red and golden hues. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
