How about a SUNRISE from above the clouds.

I don't know if Gunner67's question has been answered or not, so I'll just answer it now. It is save to take pictures of sunsets, during a sunset, the sun is really not all that sharp. It will not fry your sensor (unless perhaps you point it at the sun all evening).

Point and shoot cameras that use the camera may cause damage to the sensor after pointing the camera to the sun for a long time. That said, it will take a lot of sunlight (or a bad sensor) before that will start to happen. I have pointed my P&S at the sun on some occasions, but I never noticed any degradation to the sensor.
If you have a dSLR, it will be very hard to fry the sensor. The camera determines the exposure without using the sensor. Hence, if you point the camera at the sun, it will chose such a short exposure that your sensor will survive. Thus, only by using manual mode can you fry your sensor. However, recently I heard that a lens can also suffer from direct sunlight. Apperently you can fry the apperture curtain.
To make a long story short, avoid pointing your camera at the sun, but don't worry when taking pictures of sunsets or when you accidently point your camera at the sun sometimes.
