    Here's one with the default 'cloudy' white balance on my camera. Reflects it pretty well.

    That picture was taken on Mars.

    I call shenanigans.

    Working out in city west tonight and it went very yellow followed by pinky/purply atmospherey colour :P

    Felt like the end of the world! I had just come out of the gym and kept closing and re-opening my eyes as I wasn't sure if it was my eyes not adjusting correctly.

    You'll route that through a proxy server to hide the fact that it was sent from Mars.

    I won't fall for that one again!

    My guess is dust from the Sahara in the atmosphere.

    I enclose the pinky sky just at end of large grey stormy rain at blanchardstown

    thats exactly what i saw. obviously the sun was setting and reflecting off dark clouds. i thought i saw a few flashes too. but cant be certain, in clondalkin.

    A Russian Volcano erupted in the last few days it could be ash in the atmosphere from that,what ever it was it sure was purty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,302 ✭✭✭✭endacl


    Likely to be a result of refraction through a load of particularly heavy and regular raindrops as the sun set, I'd say. Kind of like having the rainbow effect from a prism panned steadily down.

    Blue and green light are more easily scattered than red light which is why the sky appears read at sunset.

    Because dust and fumes are close to the ground they break up the blue and green light but not the red which why when the sun is close to the horizon the sky turns red and different shades of red.

    I noticed this myself earlier, it was a very yellow colour and i said this to some people here, it looked very odd.

    If its what I'm thinking of then I've seen it quite a few times here, hardly that rare is it :confused:

    Happens when there's low cloud overhead but the western horizon is clear

    Edit: Meant to post that half an hour ago before there were pics in the thread, definitely looks like the sun illuminating the misty low cloud

    Why Is The Sky Yellow...

    Actually it is multi-coloured. It just appears blue because we are more sensitive to that colour.

    The sky appears blue because ,as light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

    However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

    Net Zero means we are paying for the destruction of our economy and society in pursuit of an unachievable and pointless policy.
