If you’re lucky, sometimes the El Paso sky will amaze you.

As for when the Sun City sky will throw a breath-taking surprise your way, it is sporadic.

Although sometimes it isn’t so pleasant when the sky is gloomy.

For example, last year the El Paso sky had me like a curious cat. It wasn’t a full gloomy day but there was something strange going on in the sky.

It looked like sun rays except they weren’t so bright. It was like strips of a darker shade.

It could be spotted a mile away from Gateway West and Airway Blvd in August last year. The photos I shared will show it isn’t a shadow from my car window. I took several photos of the sky with the window partially up and all the way down.

Back to what I originally mentioned earlier about a recent El Paso sky. After the sun began to set around 7:30 pm El Pasoans on the opposite of the Westside of town had quite a view.

Now I am not the only one who enjoys taking pictures of the El Paso sky. Someone you’re also familiar with on KLAQ, Mr. Duke Keith shared a stunning photo of the sunset from Wednesday.

Except he was on the Westside of town when he shared his photo below.

El Paso has powerful sunsets that at times are truly amazing for any part of town you’re on. I did the same thing as Duke Keith by capturing the phenomenal view you can scroll through below.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
