Sunday Sunset: Rainbow Over Gulfport

We want to see your photos! We know we live in paradise and part of that is enjoying a beautiful sunset everyday. We want you to send in your sunset photos from around the area and every Sunday, we'll share it on Gulfport Patch.

Welcome to your Sunday Sunset, a weekly photo feature that reminds us to take a moment and appreciate what it means to live in Gulfport.

Patch reader and Facebook friend Eagle Finegan sent in this photo of a rainbow in Gulfport. Finegan snapped the photo on Friday night just up the street from Stella's!

Thanks for sending in the photo!

If you would like to submit a photo for our next "Sunday Sunset", email it to the editor at cherlene.willis@patch.com.

The sunset on Tuesday night will be an interesting event. Venus will be passing in front of the sun (a transit), and a small dot which is the silouette of our sister planet should be visible to the naked eyes as the sun is on the horizon. That will be true if the sky is clear, of course. http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/last-transit-of-venus-in-21st-century-will-happen-in-june-2012 Gulfport's Williams Pier should be a decent place to view, but Theresa and I will likely go to Pass-a-Grille if the weather is right. From Williams Pier the sun will be setting over buildings and trees. From the Gulf beaches, the sun will be visible a little longer setting on the water and might be a better view. Do not stare at the sun when it is higher in the sky, or you may be end up with sunburned eyes or worse. Once it gets low and red/orange, you should be able to enjoy the transit of Venus without harm.

Thanks Cherlene. But I gotta say, when the Patch adds spell-check on the comments, a lot of us will be very happy. I mean really, I do know how to spell "opportunity" even when my post you quoted has "Opportuny " in it. LOL! Yes, I should proof-read my comments...
