Lower Manhattan sunset, rainbow, and a spooky surprise

Sunday evening rewarded us with an unexpectedly beautiful sunset and rainbow over the East River. We took the photos below from Governors Island.
The sunset was pretty on its own, but the rainbow added a touch of magic.
The white boat near the center of the photo below is the Governors Island ferry on its way to dock on the island.
The sailboat in the photo below is the Clipper City Tall Ship, with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background.
The photos didn't quite do the whole scene justice, so we took some video to show the whole sky. 
To our surprise and amusement, the music playing in the background of the video is the opening to  Bela Lugosi's Dead by Bauhaus. The music was playing at an outdoor restaurant, adding some pumpkin spice Halloweenish flair.
This video gets into the lyrics:
About ten minutes later, the pink sky and rainbow were gone, and the moon rose over Brooklyn, making for a lovely end to the day.
