Some unreal Sunsets and Blood Moon seen here in WV, due to the West Coast Fires.   https://www.space.com/smoke-from-us-wildfires-seen-from-space-july-2021
When asked about White Supremacy, I do not believe in it, since most white people that I know are very much mediocre. Therefore, I believe in White Mediocracy.

Hey Dood,

Visibility definitely reduced  in smoke here recently,much worse toward NYC. I took a walk to a good sunset vantage point to take some pix.Sun was super deep/dull pink and disappeared WELL above the horizon. Moon was up at Zenith and was sort of pinked and kind of dimmed.

Cold frontal passage blew everything out  last night .Yesterday's Sun at rise was dim   reddish pink.

Today's rise was  full lumen /normal/ exceptionally bright white. Dry, almost chilly in a tee shirt this AM.

When I was a kid ( 250 years ago), it seemed fire smoke was a rare phenomena. Not so now.I had also heard mention a while back that not only would the western US be a source for New England smoke, but Southern Canada is now up and coming as a new potential "hot spot" for us as well. Nice.

There are a lot of man made factors that go into this type of disaster, I am sure you can think of a few of them . But they are also "political" in nature.  So I will just kind of "move on" past that aspect of this issue.
