A Lilac Anti-sunset

I have no idea if “anti-sunset” is even a term… I am not sure what caused this, but recent when I was out for an evening walk, the sky to the east turned this beautiful lilac color while the sun was setting to the west. Shortly after, a full moon rose in the east (it appears in the last panorama photo), so it is possible the colors are from sunlight reflecting off the moon onto the clouds, so maybe this was just a very colorful moonrise. Either way, it was pretty.
