Sunset Colours

Here's an activity that's best done on a clear, sunny evening.


Find somewhere comfortable to sit and watch the sun start to set

  • How do the colours around you change as the sky gets darker?
  • How long does it take to get dark after sunset?
  • Is it a pink sunset?
  • A red sunset?

Describe the sunset colours

  • Which colours are in the sky the longest?
  • Which ones fade quickly?

Look for things you couldn't see during the day

  • Start counting stars as they appear in the sky.
  • When do you start to lose count?

Then do the same again a week later

How was it different to the first sunset?
