The people of Victoria were left awestruck after stunning hues of pink, orange and red lit up the autumn evening skies last night.

What is sure to be the first of many vibrant fall sunsets shone over the city on Tuesday night, much to the delight of locals with their eyes peeled to the skies. 

Victoria’s picturesque coastal beauty set against the backdrop of one of nature’s most spectacular phenomenons made for a truly breathtaking sight for viewers and photographers alike. 

In case you missed it, here are 13 photos of the fiery light show last night:
