Every day, dozens of people line up along the edge of the canyon to watch the sun set. As soon as the sun sinks below the horizon, people rush back to their cars and hurry back to their hotels. Few people realize that often time the real show does not begin until 15 minutes after the sun is gone. The sky can explode with color, in turn bringing out a warm glow in the canyon below.
