“Dr. Zarkov! There’s no sun! It’s 8:24 in the morning, and there’s no sun!”

It’s very eerie outside. The news says that smoke from wildfires is being held at very high altitudes, obscuring the sun and making the world appear red. Sunrise was at 6:46am but, OMG, it’s 8:24 in the morning and there’s no sun!

(that’s a quote from the 1980 movie Flash Gordon)

Yesterday the weather report was for a second 95 degree day in a row. But instead of it being smokey and unbearably hot (Google’s forecast , it was cool and… apocalyptic. I’m very done with 2020.

I tried to take a photo of the effect by my camera… well, my camera didn’t believe the sky was the color the way it is. I color corrected these images to be close to correct. But it is, in fact, redder, darker and more apocalyptic.

Yes, I took these photos at 8:24 this morning.
