Maybe some of the orange is due to smoke from California fires.

Just a couple of minutes later than previous shot.
Tiny speck is a tug ... gives some scale to the scene.
Note: Contrail shadows on cloud layer above.

Just about the moment of sunset.
Be sure to note the dark cloud at center.

After the previous photo ...
Just enough later for the sun to light up the clouds.
And a Happy New Year ...
