It looked like the sky was ablaze. There were wildfires in the Western US at the time and I suspect that the smoke and ash particulates from those fires affected the colors of the sunset. I stopped and took pictures. People of course stared at me, but I'm sure they were just wishing they had their cameras.

In fact, I'll let you in on a secret. I took this picture, cropped it, inverted it and replaced the background for the sunflower. Hey! I tried to get them to reposition themselves, but the flower nor the sky were cooperative. 100 6839 100 6842

Put your camera on sports or children mode and muti shot mode, point, hold your finger down  and then hope one of them is in focus. OR learn what you're doing, get all the settings just right and then hope one of them is in focus.
