Times are tough. COVID-19 cases are on the rise, meaning businesses are shutting down and visits with loved ones are restricted. That may be why last night's stunning Montreal sunset meant so much — like a ray of hope beaming across the city.
Montrealers were clearly over the moon (pun intended!) to see the sky ablaze in shades of orange, yellow, purple and pink. It literally looked like the sky was on fire.
From north to south, east to west, residents expressed their awe by — how else? — taking to social media to post about it.
The resulting photos were too good to not share — especially since we could all use a little pick me up right now!
Let's give ourselves another day to marvel at the beauty of nature and revel in some #skyporn before our thoughts drift back down to earth.
