PHOTOS: Stunning sunrises and sunsets in the Channel Islands

The channel Islands have been spoiled for choice with the recent sunrises and sunsets and viewers have been out in force to capture the moments.

Sunrises are created when water molecules, air molecules and/or airborne particles scatter through white sunlight as they pass through the Earth's atmosphere.

Sunset colours are typically more brilliant than sunrise colours, because the evening air contains more particles than morning air.

Sophia, our weather presenter, has shown some viewers' photographs on her weather bulletins recently, and will continue to do so as the sunrises and sunsets continue.
