I live in Extreme northwest GA and yesterday we noticed something very odd. It was nearing 9PM EST (around sunset or a little after) and I went
outside and noticed the sky and ground (from skylight) was this orangish color. Very odd, as today there wasn't any light other than very little
sunlight. I'm open to anything (Conspiracy theories to Science) and I will post some pictures (It didnt catch the light well, but the cloulds are odd
So here I go. (this is at 9pm, the skies are unusually bright as well)
Beautiful sunsets and sunrises like that are common where I live due to pollutants in the air. I would imagine you are getting your fantastic sunsets
due to all the things going on in your neck of the woods. Temperature can also effect the sunset's colors, as winter sunsets tend to be more colorful
than summer sunsets here.
When Mt. Saint Helens erupted, we had the most astounding sunsets over the ocean!
Looks pretty normal to me. Usually sunsets here (in Detroit) right after storms are an awesome yellow. I'm guessing it has to do with amount of
moisture in the air, temperature, clouds and light angles.
This reminds me of an old saying my father used to tell me“Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in morning, sailor's warning” . Not sure
what causes it but you may try google. I can say it was a common sight when we would visit the central Florida coast when I was a kid and it was an
Are you kidding and just trying to be so over the top. This is an event that has been documented for 1000's of years and you try and make into some
goverment conspiracy. Stop grasping at straws and enjoy a show of nature. It is a spectacular sight to behold.
I'm in Las Vegas and several days ago we had pink clouds at night. The temperature here has been at a high of 114 F for about 2.5 weeks and gets
down to about 106 F by 10 or 11 at night. Light pollution and air pollution (spraying etc.) remain constant with an actual break in the spraying for
a week or so. There also seems to be a pink haze surrounding Frenchman Mt. when viewed from on high driving northwest down into the valley.
Anyway...these clouds were pink - not sort of pinkish - and it was at night, after sunset.
I defend myself by saying I am very familiar with the clouds (Yes there is a "storm" cloud in the pic at the horizon, but what about all the clouds
overhead? I can tell you those aren't storm clouds) also I'm a storm spotter so I do look at clouds quite often.
