16. Some people were trapped indoors.

17. THE HORROR.

Look at my great view of the #sunset #nofilter

18. They weren't going to miss out though.

19. Those with a window seat thanked their lucky stars.

20. Those outside even more so...

Have a look at this one from listener Anthony. I think I want to write some poetry. #sydneysunset @NewsTalk2UE

Elsewhere in Australia, people were pretty unimpressed.

Melbourne is better than Sydney, because we tweet about more interesting banal events #sunset

Others took the piss.

Sydney quickly struck back.

A lot of sunset envy coming out of Melbourne, where the sun has not risen in months.
