9 Best Sunsets in the World

By Julia Austin, Planet Green

If you accidentally catch one, you suddenly become incredibly calm, contemplative and feel like youíve snuck in on a romantic momentóIím talking about sunsets. And snuggled up couples have been watching them since long before Glee and American Idol took up our evening free time. Some of us still skip out on modern entertainment just to go watch the sunset. Some people are sunset connoisseurs, constantly seeking out the highest rooftop, quietest beach, or most off-limits location to sneak into and watch it. For those of you out there, here are 10 spots to watch the sunset that have probably appeared on a postcard.

Ayers Rock in Northern Territory, Australia
The sky is streaked in red here when the sun goes down. That is because Ayers Rock is the seat of Uluru, a 348-meter high, 500 million year old red rock and the worldís largest monolith. When the clouds move across the sky at sunset, they reflect the rockís blood-orange hues into the sky.
