The area where the fires are in Colorado are over 700 miles west.
Yet tonight there was enough ash suspended in the upper atmosphere that the sunset was a very vivid orange red. I have not seen a sunset like that in Iowa since Mt St Helens erupted and we had temps over 100 in April.

I hope they get those fires out soon! The smoke can travel long distances and cause some strange looking skies. A few years back there was a big fire in Quebec. The smoke drifted all the way down here (1000miles+) in the upper atmosphere and caused some weird greyish brown skies.

I've been noticing more coloration too over the last few days. Didn't make the association to the fires at all.

Thanks for pointing it out.

I tried to get a picture on my cell phone and the colors did nt come out. But it is really weird.
