Red sky in the Morning…

Red Sky in the Morning shepherd take warning

Red sky at night Shepherds delight… Red Sky in the Morning, shepherd take warning…..The sunrise this morning certainly predicted a rainy day…

A red sky at night is a shepherd’s delight! A red sky in the morning is a shepherd’s warning.”

Perhaps this saying came to mind if you caught a spectacular sunrise or sunset recently.

ince biblical times and probably before, proverbs and folklore such as this developed as a way for societies to understand and foretell prevailing weather conditions.

The “red sky” proverb has endured across cultures for centuries, and modern science can explain why this is so.

What causes a red sky at sunrise and sunset?

The Sun is low on the horizon at sunrise and sunset. At these times of the day, sunlight has had to travel through more of the atmosphere to reach us.

When light hits the atmosphere it is scattered, particularly when dust, smoke and other particles are in the air.

This scattering affects the blue part of the light spectrum the most. So by the time the sunlight reaches our eyes there is generally more of the red and yellow parts of the spectrum remaining.

My photos are all taken with a Canon Camera. Canon is a great camera for color and vibrant photos and so easy to use on Automatic, especially if you are trying to handle changing light and scenery involving clouds and skies and constant movement. https://amzn.to/2JPcwBa
