A smoky sun and moon

The forest fires in Washington are terribly frightening and I hope for rain and favourable winds to help the people down there.  Here in the Calgary area, the smoke has carried north which has left the skies hazy for the past week.

In the morning, the sun glows red as it rises out of thickest part of the smoke just above the horizon.

At night, the moon’s color changes, seemingly with her mood, between gold, orange and red.

  1. I am in Oregon, and the widlfire smoke was thick for a couple of days, then improved, so there has been progress. Beautiful captures of the skies.

  2. The moon was huge here yesterday – but when I tried to capture it with my little camera, it was jast a small white speck in the sky. So great to see your beautiful photo of it today! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
