I admit, last week I drunk posted some stupid stuff about dolphins but this is different. I'm currently in Woodside queens with a friend and it's lightly raining.

In the eastern sky we can see a band of purple in the clouds. I only have my iPhone so that's not going to take a good enough pic.

Anybody in the area able to see this at all?

Any ideas what it could be?

I don't know what's going on with the sky, but it's not the sky I remember from 15-20 years ago, and it's certainly not the sky that I remember as a child growing up.

In NYC, not seeing any purple lights.

It did rain earlier so perhaps -

I saw it for about 25 minutes. It wasn't the moon, wasn't Jupiter, and wasn't either airport and it's planes.

It was just a band or ball of nice deep purple in the sky through the clouds

I'm guessing you're watching the departing warm air being pushed out by the cold front... it contains strong thunderstorms on one side, and snow on the other lol..

You could also be viewing the lights from the city reflecting off of the lower level clouds.

Yes but according to my noaa weather app there have been no lightning strikes in that area recently.

HAARP got fired up again. They said to expect some strange glows.


During four nights this week the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) will spring to life after three years of dormancy, and heat the highest wisps of our atmosphere directly above.

Sorry I missed it. I'm usually an avid sky watcher, but with the rain tonight I was indoors.

That sounds like a very plausible explanation - thanks for the info.

Sure, could be the city reflecting. It was different though.

Yeah there is some business around here that shines a purple light into the sky.

Maybe that light was being refracted into the clouds.

That's Trump winning with purple rain.

Likely the cloud wall from that passing storm.

This was not the cloud wall. This was a deep purple light in the clouds. It didn't really look like the glow of the city to me.

I grew up in Los angles and now live in NYC. It didn't really look like the city lights reflecting on clouds. I have lived in NYC for five years. This was different.

I have also lived in Tampa, St. Louis, Columbus Ohio, Kingston Jamaica, London, and a few other cities. This was odd.

But...... maybe it was me. It was probably was, maybe.

I was hoping more for some sort of rocket launch I wasn't aware of or something comparable to that
