Mother Nature steals the show



It's pretty hard to upstage the fabulous burrito brothers, but Mother Nature did just that earlier this week. She capped off a 70-degree afternoon with this spectacular light show.

For more views of Mother Nature's performances around the world, check out the links on the Skywatch home page.

  4. Amazingly beautiful, but why does George and Allan look like they're arguing - under such a beautiful sky? Or maybe George is cleaning Allan's teeth perhaps?

  42. That really is gorgeous. Although, in spite of the fabulous colours and textures in the sky, it would definitely be lacking something if the Fabulous Burrito Brothers (love that! They could take that on the road, but I digress.) weren't shown in profile at the bottom.

    Have a great weekend!
