Yes the brightness of stars and moon has been ridic last few nights in Dublin 5. Is this just down to this pressure stuff that I don't understand? I was thinking maybe it's down to lack of cars and planes and less activity in the city, but I'm probably wrong.

Has anyone noticed that the sky has been sort of an orange colour recently? I mean not the sky itself but when I looked at the clouds at around midnight there was this definite orange hue which they picked up?
It looked here as if the sun hadn't quite gone down, there was an orangey hue to the sky when you looked westwards?
It's been 3 nights in a row now the same phenomenon.
Admittedly we're in West Dublin Firhouse but light pollution doesn't explain it completely as I have never seen that colour before.
Anyone know what it might be?
Thanks in advance!

Gorse fires on Slieve Mish Mountains today looking back towards Brandon. Never ceases to amaze me the selfish actions of some.

Been very dry here near Tralee, no rainfall in 10 days apart from the AWS measuring 1 tip of 0.2mm

Overcast and damp morning gave way to a bright sunny afternoon. Got up to a decent enough 11.2C.

My wife was on a very quite Banna Strand this morning, somebody was being creative earlier

Horrid day in the Deise - briefly looked like the cloud would split but nope So here's hoping for a glimpse of the sky tomorrow. As for the outlook, it really seems like we're getting into a rhythm of regenerating HP at this latitude. I see very little sign of "proper" rain on the horizon.

For a bit of light relief and because of the day that's in it, I am sticking up 2 photos taken in the garden yesterday eve. Whatever happened with the light in the bottom one, something unusual appeared. Told one of the kids earlier that there was a UFO spotted over Mayo!
Anyway back to the weather. The largely dry past week has been very pleasant with some lovely evening skyscapes and a particularly nice moody one yesterday. This evening was the exception as a weak weather front brought cloudier conditions.

first crap day in a while, raining for past few hours with some heavy bursts mixed in, most of the time the rain is light.

Heavens have opened in Kildare. The smell of Petrichor is fierce.

Walked the dog around the block. Never appreciated a rain shower like it after days indoors 💙

Dry here down south, sunny morning became gradually overcast by evening. I doubt this supposed frontal activity is going to do any more than damp the ground here.

few more dryish days then we're back to normal service, quite unsettled but much milder next week, may even get to the high teens at times with a bit of luck if there is any sunshine.
