Tauranga and Mount Maunganui locals were keen to get out their camera's as last night's setting sun provided a picture perfect moment.
Reds, purples and blues filtered through the sky as the sun prepared to say goodbye to what was left of Thursday.
SunLive readers have sent in an array of snapshots and we wanted to share the images with everyone else.
If you managed to get a photo of the sun setting, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
