I was waiting for someone else to state the maybe obvious. Always with the unpopular opinion…

What, they don't have red sky sunsets down there?


I am not sure it would have made the news if it happened all the time, though you never know!
My guess is a meteor - It's too similar to the one shown on the Russian video, almost identical.

Really? I live near Birmingham UK - must look out the window! Do you have some coordinates RA/DEC to look to?

Don't buy that theory from the Telegraph.

More likely to be loads of dust suspended in the atmosphere, due to the earthquakes in nearby Ecuador (only about 1000km away more or less)

Dusty atmosphere's are what cause the nice deep red sunsets we're all used to seeing, as it refracts the rays of light from the setting sun causing a change to red colour.

This is probably what's happening here IMO.

Sorry I was referring to Buddha's post not the OP. Jury is still out on that.

But a single photo does not a meteor make. If they had video of the red sky glow moving that might lend to a meteor.

So I'm still seeing a sunset claiming its a mystery.

Although my personal opinion is that this has nothing to do with China,as of yet,i've had some dreams in the past indicating that China is going to be a big problem for Some country in the not too distant future. I've seen in my dreams a Chinese army as a huge invading force,as in boots on the ground,that's how you say it,i forget? or feet on the ground,a massive army. And a missile strike,using 3 missiles,or 3 warheads.

Don't know, maybe. They eye witnesses reportedly saw a large ball of 'fire' in the sky that lasted for a couple of seconds prior to the photo. That's consistent with the Russian video too, although those eye witnesses are of course only reported. I have not seen a video interview yet.

Here's some more pictures, and some possible explanations.




Personally,I wonder if there is any chance of another major Earthquake, they had one on that date, several in-between, and two today, while many are deep underground. All of them are quite strong, and I think they had red skies before.


Hope it has nothing to do with that big honkin volcano in these pictures.

Kind of reminds me of that orange night sky event in Russia a couple of years ago.
Odd.....

Maybe what they saw in the sky was due to volcano activity.

There is some activity in that area:

Santiaguito volcano
Stratovolcano (3772 m (12,375 ft))
erupting
Last update: 20 Apr 2016 (increased effusive / explosive activity from Caliente dome)

Fuego volcano
Stratovolcano (3,763 m / 12,346 ft)
erupting
Last update: 13 Apr 2016 (lava flows on S and W flanks, lava fountaining from summit vent)

Pacaya volcano
Complex volcano (2552 m (8,373 ft))
erupting
Last update: 29 Mar 2016 (intense spattering from intra-crater cone)

Interesting - could be.
The Fuego volcano would be the likely one if it was the cause of the flash and glow in the sky, as the event, I think, happened about a week ago.

It looks like a good possibility.
Check out the images here showing eruptions:
www.volcanodiscovery.com...

The Fuego activity does say "lava fountaining from summit vent"

From a distance, that would make the sky look red.
And I think someone said they saw a flash - that could have been the first eruption.

Earth is starting to pass through the debris of Comet Thatcher, or annual Lyrid meteor shower. It could be from that and the redness could be from a lot of volcanic ash in the atmosphere.

Fireball spring season is in full swing and it is no wonder we are seeing more reports and observations of bright fireballs. This time it was the UK’s turn to enjoy a spectacular meteor event, which occurred in the early morning March 17, 2016 at 3:16:54 UT (i.e. GMT). The fireball meteor lit up the countryside for 4 seconds and…

More about it in the post. it was on the 17th?

it is not in the main news? why?

That video looks like a drug cartel's munitions cache being destroyed, far away in the mountains.

For such a small region, the central American countries have an extraordinarily high rate of "strange" occurrences, sightings, disappearances, etc..
