WEDNESDAY NIGHT SKIES

Red sky at night, sailor's delight, Red sky at morning, sailors take warning. So if this holds true then I guess it's a great day to be sailing in Southern California. Just had to share these pictures with you. (sorry, they are kind of grainy)



Red sky at night, sailors delight. When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow.

Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning. A red sunrise reflects the dust particles of a system that has just passed from the west. This indicates that a storm system may be moving to the east. If the morning sky is a deep fiery red, it means a high water content in the atmosphere. So, rain is on its way.

I had always heard that saying, even quoting it myself.
But I didn't understand the meaning behind it.
Thanks for the great explanation!

That's so funny...As I came out of church last night I said that exact saying to my husband...and then he told our daughter that God made the sky purple and pink just for her. Hehehe!
