Apparently a Double Sunset is a rare astro-geographical phenomenon and on 23rd September 2015 at 5:55 pm, I took this beautiful picture of a Double Sunset from my bedroom window.

It had been a lovely day, where the heavy rain from yesterday had really cooled the weather. With clouds puffing around all day, I had been pretty much glued to the sky, taking pictures quite frequently.
It was just a coincidence that I looked out the window, as the sun was about to set, and I saw what looked like Solar Flares to me, reaching us down here on earth:
At this moment, the sun was obscured by the clouds, though you could see the sunbeams on the clouds above, and then within no time, the cloud split open and I was presented with this intense yellow patch. Loaded with my Cell phone I just zoomed in to grab these two pics:
Now I had heard about Double Sunsets being a stuff of legend, and had seen a couple of pictures on the internet, most of which seemed to have been Photoshopped. But lo and behold, there it was, right in front of me. I didn't panic and quickly zoomed to the maximum and took this pic:

It was slowly slipping into something else so I quickly took another one:
So that's how I got to capture this unique picture of a Double Sunset.
There is no trickery involved, no Photoshop and no smoke and mirrors. I was just lucky to have observed this phenomenon. I am not sure what caused it. But it seemed to last just a few seconds.
