Can’t get enough sunset pictures on Instagram? Well, Periscope has a solution to get your fix with its newest iOS update.

The livestreaming app now includes a daylight curve where users can join a livestream session (called a “Scope”) of a sunrise or sunset in real time from countries around the globe. (via Periscope’s iOS update)

Broadcasters can also include their local time during a Scope, which gives viewers more information and context on where they are and what time it is, locally.

This update to Periscope comes shortly after their recent partnership announcement with GoPro, which will allow adventurists, explorers, athletes, and any GoPro owner the ability to livestream from their GoPro camera directly to Periscope and Twitter.
