IN THE PICTURE: red sky at night, shepherd’s delight

MOST READ

Photographer Lisa Jordan captured this glowing red sky over Selsley Common.

Lisa was out to capture the beautiful night red sky on Monday – which is typically followed by a day of good weather.

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.

Dust and smoke particles commonly build up in the atmosphere beneath high-pressure systems, which are generally associated with dry and settled weather.
