20 Epic Snapshots of the Sunset in Philly Last Night


If you were too busy wallowing over the Eagles' loss, you might've missed the crazy sunset in Philly last night that blew up Instagram feeds city-wide. NBC meteorologist Brittney Shipp says the fiery sunset was the result of the "cold, dry, and quiet" weather the region has been experiencing: "Sometimes when a stable air mass is over our area at sunset the skies can look more vibrant and red." Here are some of the best Instagrams of the jaw-dropping sunset, which include shots of Philly landmarks like City Hall, the Kimmel Center, and the SS United States ship.
