Twitter user @johnspurs1 was among the first to share the news before 9 p.m Sunday night.

Alan Abdine also caught the lit Longhorn on camera.

The Texas Longhorns Twitter account was quick to join in on sharing photos too.

A representative with Fairmont Austin said the lights were in celebration of the hotel's sponsorship of Texas Athletics for the 2019 football season. The hotel has special packages and events happening in conjunction with the football games.

Just earlier this week, the UT Tower was lit up in burnt orange as well, celebrating the women's golf team's third consecutive Big 12 Championship win.
