Why the sun looked so red Friday evening
Please refresh the page and retry. D id you wake up to a ghostly red sun today or witness a strange red hue to the sky on your lunch break or as you left work? Many people in England reported the phenomenon on Monday morning - and it appears to have been caused by Hurricane Ophelia. Many posted pictures of the bizarre sighting on social media, wondering if it is a sign of the oncoming storm. Some areas have been forced to turn on street lights in the middle of the day as the dust partially blocked out the sun. T he strange red tint was in the air, and the sun glowed an angry red. One woman wrote on Instagram: "It looks like the apocalypse is coming!
As an enormous Atlantic storm batters Ireland, a related phenomenon is turning heads further east over in the United Kingdom. There, the sun has turned a deep red color, casting orange light over the south of the country. A Met Office spokeswoman told TIME this was caused by winds spinning in an anticlockwise direction around Hurricane Ophelia as it formed over the ocean. These winds have brought north sand from the Sahara desert and dust from wildfires burning in northern Spain and Portugal, along with an unseasonably warm temperature. Just like the way sunsets are sometimes red, excess particles in the atmosphere can change the colour of the sun in the daytime. These particles scatter light particles they come into contact with, reflecting the blue end of the spectrum back into space and leaving only red light to penetrate the lower reaches of the atmosphere.
Red sun - Red moon
If you glanced up Monday or Tuesday, you may have noticed the sun was a glowing red orb in the sky, far ruddier than its usual beams. That's thanks to the wildfires in northern Montana and southwestern Canada and the winds blowing from the northwest, explains Andrew White, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. It may not be what you think. Comprised of the colors of the rainbow, the sun takes on different tints depending on what's up in the atmosphere, according to the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. When particles, such as smoke or dust, fill the atmosphere, the longer wavelengths of light — which look red — scatter more effectively. If the air is cleaner, there are more air molecules, which scatter shorter wavelengths or light, or blue light, more effectively.
The sky turned distinctly orange as a murky gloom settled over Coventry from about 3pm. Rather than a blinding yellow, the sun seemed to have turned into a small, bright, red ball shining through the clouds. This was followed about four hours later by thunderstorms over Coventry and heavy rain in Nuneaton. That was caused by the former hurricane pulling air and dust up from southern Europe and Africa, causing the sun to appear red. Otherwise the rest of Wales, the Midlands and southeast England will see showery rain turn heavier as it slowly sinks southwards. Cloudy and wet across southern England and south Wales with outbreaks of rain for much of the day.
A question asked by my son was, " Why is the moon sometimes orange? Or red? What causes this? The orange and red tints that the Sun and Moon sometimes take on are caused by the particles in the Earth's atmosphere. When light or more specifically, packets of light called photons from an astronomical object passes through the Earth's atmosphere, it scatters off of particles in the latter. It turns out that these particles like to scatter blue light more than they do red light; so "bluer" photons those with shorter wavelengths tend to get scattered, and "redder" photons those with longer wavelengths pass through. So, astronomical objects look redder from Earth than they would from space, because the redder wavelengths from the objects penetrate the atmosphere better than the bluer ones.
