Its 1:20 am, the sky is red/pink. Im trying to get a photo of it but my phone isnt capturing it very well.

Im aware of the old sayings, but those are for sunset and dawn, not the middle of the night.

By the way i live near the northern coast of SC

Anybody else seeing this?

That looks like that same stuff that happened when the Northern Lights came real low last time. There was an M-9 flair yesterday. see here However, it doesn't seem that it will get here for a few days.

Dude, that is freakishly wild!? I live S of Charlotte and I just checked - all we have is wet dreary misty cold fog. Can't even see the stars, which I usually can living in the country.

Maybe it's atmospheric? City lights reflecting off the low cloud deck? Ya'll got clouds there or can you see the stars?

Nothing to report here in the southern Nevada Desert. Clear skies and partially cloudy, no moon or moonlight visible from my window. It's a new moon tomorrow anyway, chinese new years. Think this might coincide with the lunar calender in some weird way? I feel like the true start of 2012 may come with the Chinese New Year. We'll see tomorrow.

I've actually got slightly pinkish skies here in the Upstate. I don't know what in the world is going on. Anyway, I would watch the news tomorrow for a giant fire or some kind of plant explosion.

Do you have any idea what is showing on the hwy 17N traffic cam (#11), it appears to be glowing very brightly but what I would like to know is the direction the traffic cam is facing.

So, any word on what the phenomena is?

I don't know for certain, but one possiblility is dust from the Sahara desert. It blows across the Atlantic from time to time, apparently it is happening now according to this article from January 19th.

Just like pollution it would change the colors.

Here are some more articles on the phenomenon:



This TOMS aerosol movie, which spans the interval June 13 through 21, 2001, shows a cloud of African dust crossing the Atlantic and raining bits of the Sahara Desert over the Caribbean.

nasa

We've found that dust outbreaks, along with other factors, seem to be shifting tropical precipitation (which typically occurs in a narrow band where winds from the northern and southern hemispheres come together) northward by about four or five degrees, which is about 240 to 280 miles at the equator.

another nasa article

The Caribbean islands and south Florida are bracing for their next major weather event. It's not a hurricane, though; it's a dust storm, an enormous cloud of red sand. And get this: It's kicked up in the Sahara Desert and rides the trade winds all the way across the Atlantic.

npr

Scientists say those are not clouds; that is dust from the Sahara desert. Giant sand storms — often larger than Spain — routinely blow all the way across the Atlantic, reaching South America, the Caribbean, and the southeastern United States.

"There have been times when airports in the Caribbean have been closed down for lack of visibility from these dust storms," said Eugene Shinn, a senior geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey in St. Petersburg, Fla. "It shows we're all linked together in one way or the other, that's for sure."

I'm in the upstate part of SC and I have been seeing this strange phenomenon for many months-- even back when folks were screamin' "Elenin's on its way." I've searched the Internet for an explanation, I've commented in threads (but never started one) and I've had my husband come outside and look. (He said 'hmmm... weird.') The most "hmmm... weird" thing of all, is that it always occurs well after sunset, it is almost never in the actual location of a sunset, and it seems to drift by the seasons. I've seen it further to the north and also further to the south. This strange phenomenon has been going on in my world for about 9 months now. It is not always as pronounced as you saw last night, but once you see it you'll realize that the red hue is always present at night to some degree, right there near the westerly horizon.

I'm glad someone else sees this. Pray tell, what could it be?

Probably a silly suggestion, but could it not simply be light pollution?

I think PianoPraze has a good idea. Very well could be wind from the Sahara having blown our way. Add to it the major dust storms the southwest had last year, the reddish hue of the sand in both places, and sand particles' propensity to stay in the atmosphere forever-and-a-day, and I think we may have a winner.

If what you're seeing is similar to that on the webcam images it looks like city lights reflecting off low clouds/smoke/smog.
