Letters to June, #15

Dear June,

How do sunsets get their color? I mean, I know it’s from the sun. But every sunset is different. Even though they all look the same (to some extent), they’re not all the same.

They can have different colors. Some more orange. Or more purple. Or more pink. Or more red. Or more blue. Some have all or just a few colors. But how do sunsets get their colors?

It’s also beautiful to thing that the sunset today will not be exactly the same as the sunset tomorrow. 

I’ve been alive for over 8,760 sunsets, and seen more than half of those. And I will always want to take a picture of a sunset (or sunrise). Yes, June I’m that person. They are just so beautiful, how can you not want to try to capture it? Of course you can capture the real thing exactly because it’s always more beautifuller in person. And then you end up having a thousand photos of different sunsets that are slightly similar looking but equally stunning. No wonder Peeta’s favorite color was basically sunset.

Anyways June, I’ve always wondered how sunsets get their colors. Is it based scientifically with the cloud levels? Or atmospheric levels of something scientific in the air? Or the position of the Earth in relation to the sun and the its angle? Or maybe the sun chooses?

That would actually be a nice children book idea. The sun chooses it’s colors. And the lesson could it’s okay to be different, just be true to who you are. What do you think?

Anyways, I hope wherever you are the sun shines nicely and you’re able to see beautiful sunsets.

I’ll write to you soon.

Love and all the good things,
