Noticed the moon looked different tonight (was reddish in color) and looked up the cause - smoke from the wildfires out west. Sun during sunset was more 'red' than usual. My cell phone can't capture a good pic. Looks cool though - similar to the color it becomes during a lunar eclipse but not as drastic

A friend just texted me to go outside and check it out… super cool but disturbing that it’s because of smoke from a fire over 2000 frickin miles away.

The end times are on us my friends :howdy:

Imagine seeing this in 1883:

 

Heard 3,000 miles away, the explosions threw five cubic miles of earth 50 miles into the air, created 120-foot tsunamis and killed 36,000 people. Krakatoa exhibited its first stirrings in more than 200 years on May 20, 1883. A German warship passing by reported a seven-mile high cloud of ash and dust over Krakatoa.

While this brought about some cool optics, it's not coming without a price - there is a pretty severe poor air quality alert today. So be a little careful out there if you have some type of respiratory issue

Allegedly this haze from the fires is only supposed to last another 24 hrs and then dissipate around here, according to the local tv weather people.

The eruption was so intense it threw ash miles high and took months to clear up, with lower summer temps. From wiki:

 

"The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa caused average Northern Hemisphere summer temperatures to fall by as much as 1.2 °C (2.2 °F). One of the wettest rainy seasons in recorded history followed in California during 1883–84."

The loudest explosion ever heard by man.

I was in Hadley then Northfield today and the smell of burning trash/ rubber was strong in both places. I never smelled it last week but this time it low and dense. Hard to wrap my mind around the size of fire it would take to have its smoke causing problems 2000+ miles away. Brain is boggled.

We're getting the same thing in eastern/central mass. But unlike earlier, the haze is now very visible close to the ground and there's a smell of some kind (but it didn't really smell like wood smoke). At first I thought it was a local brush fire, but then I heard it was the wildfires again.
