More Smoke From Another Distant Fire

August 20, 2018  •  9 Comments

Smokey skies from distant fires turned the sun into a large spot above the trees near the horizon last night.

 

The pink on the Sandias at sunset was covered by the smoke.

 

The sun was like a big ball over Sayre's barn.

 

The moon had a peachy color through the smoke.

 

Mars on the left under a twig. Saturn barely visible between the branches at left-center. The moon as a starburst in the center. Jupiter all alone on the center-right. Venus hanging on the edge on the far right.

The air quality is pretty poor right now.

Hi Lavinia. I think you are getting much worse smoke than we are tight now.

That is what our sun and moon look like now, too. It's been smoky up here as well. Your photos are beautiful, as always. Tim.

Hi David. If it's coming from the north down the valley, it will hit you first and probably be much worse than what we are getting. It is nice that it doesn't smell like smoke.

We're having the same haze conditions. Yesterday was the by far the worst this summer - the haze nearly blotted out the mountains, particularly along the front range. In the valley, it was like of low-lying fog early before receding. It is believed the large fires in BC are contributing to the haze. If there is a plus, no scent of smoke.
