Too early or maybe just in time for the spooky holiday. If you live in these states: Washington, Oregon, California, you may have caught the red skies.
In case you didn’t know, fires are running across the coastal states burning hundreds of thousands of acres. Because of this, thousands of residents have evacuated to keep away from the danger.
With several flames roaming the earth, blue skies and pink sunsets have gone away. The smoke in the air can be mistaken for a sheet of clouds.
According to IFL Science, the red sky is the result of a phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering. This is caused by smoke particles from wildfire.
Red skies are definitely not a thing to see every day. Though this may seem amazing to the human eye, it definitely is scary to witness. Just look at all these visuals of the many hot spots.
As a resident in California, it is crazy to see ashes blanket over cars and benches the next morning let alone see orange skies. To inhale the smoky air is an important reminder to protect our health.
Though wildfires happen every year, firefighters continue to terminate these flames. If your interested in reading more about fires, check out 1 billion animals reportedly killed in Australian bush fires.
