Toronto's promised sunset turned out to be a big letdown

Sometimes, you just can't get what you want.

Last night's Torontohenge sunset turned out to be a huge failure.

This rare event occurs when the sunset (or sunrise) aligns perfectly with the east-west corridors of Toronto's streets. It showers the city in golden yellow tones and provides a stunning display for photographers and onlookers alike.

Unfortunately, what was supposed to be the best sunset of the year was completely blocked by cloudy and overcast weather.

People were frustrated that their photography hopes were dashed.

Luckily, Torontohenge happens about four times a year: twice for the sunrise and twice for the sunset. So those looking for a chance won't have to wait too long for another.
