Tuesday: Day in photos - Australia

The sun sets on Brighton Beach during a heat wave in Melbourne, Australia. Temperature has been topping 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and no signs of cooling are in sight; Melbourne hasn't had four consecutive days above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) since 1908, but it could break that record this week.
