Every once in awhile, Atlanta gets one of those incredible sunsets that just makes everyone stop what they’re doing and grab their phones and cameras. Friday night was one of those times, as the sunset turned the sky shades of vivid magenta and purple before the arrival of Tropical Storm Nestor, which is expected to dump multiple “waves” of rain over metro Atlanta on Saturday, according to the AJC. (Luckily, WSB-TV says no severe weather is predicted.) Here’s a roundup of some of the shots as folks rushed to Instagram to share their snaps.
