Folks flocked to Yosemite National Park to get an up close view of a bright phenomenon earlier this week.
The phenomenon, known as Yosemite’s Firefall, appears when the angle of the setting sun brightens Yosemite’s Horsetail Fall waterfall, making it look like a large fiery blaze.
“Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a fluid fire,” photographer Sangeeta Day wrote on Facebook.
“I’ve met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen 2 or 3 times.”
Take a moment to look at some other hot shots:
According to SFGate, the Firefall is usually seen mid-late February at sunset.
