Re: Happening Now: Detroit Sky RED
Wow! Quite a sight! Good job on the pics--thanks!

A bit west here we had a sky that made everything look peach colored. It was an unusual baby blue at the northern horizon, then a wide strip of orange above it, then a strip of pink above that, then another strip of a different blue. It was like a giant rainbow covering the whole sky!

No storms in the area.

Re: Happening Now: Detroit Sky RED
Very strange, before it turned red, it was casting a yellowish hue over everything as if you were looking through glasses with tinted lens. My son and I noticed that, too. You weren't the only one "geeking out".
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1373078


Totally YES! Detroit was in Ambervision...like those bad UVblocking sunglasses from the 80's.

Bizarre Golden glow spilling in through the windows. That alone was freaky, and I posted on facebook about it, and by the time I was done, the Red came.

In a way, the Amber was almost freakier than the red.
I'm not too fond of Signatures. Why would I want to end every post the same way?

"Bizarre Golden glow spilling in through the windows."

Yes! That's what caused me to take a look outside--the color spilling through the window. I mean, it was definitely a noticeable, unusual hue for all of us to be in awe of it.
Bizarre Ambervision--great description!

Re: Happening Now: Detroit Sky RED
Not only red, I witnessed orange, yellow, and purple. Oddly, I never saw the green hue that normally accompanies foul weather. Maybe I missed it.

Im just a bit north of metro airport. Strange skies indeed.

And like in the video, everything was taking on the skies color. It was surreal inside my vehicle.

I saw a guy outside snapping pics, he was in front of a local bar. Probably a fellow glper lol!!

Red skies at night, red skies at night
Wo oh, wo oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Red skies at night, red skies at night
Wo oh, wo oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Should have taken warning
It's just, people mourning, running, hiding, lost
You can't find, find a place to go

So it's red skies at night, red skies at night
Wo oh, wo oh oh oh oh
Should have taken warning
It's just, people mourning, running, hiding, lost
You can't find, find a place to go
So it's red skies at night, red skies at night
Wo oh, wo oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Red skies at night, red skies at night
Wo oh, wo oh oh
Someone's taking over
And it looks like they're aiming right at you
Someone says, "We'll be dead by morning"

Someone cries, leaving
Red eyes at night, red eyes at night
Oh, wo oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Red skies at night, red skies at night, red skies at night...

Re: Happening Now: Detroit Sky RED
The red colour of the clouds is caused by the scattering of the sunlight by the different constituents of the atmosphere. The air molecules scatter the blue light more effectively than the red part of the sunlight. This causes the orange-like colour of the setting or rising sun. But to generate an intensively red sky, there also have to be lots of water droplets in the air. Not only water droplets but also dust particles (maybe from a volcanic eruption) can contribute to colourful twilight effects.

Water in the upper atmosphere creating what is known as a tropical sunset. The problem being Detroit is a fair distance from the tropics and cold air sliding underneath from Canada could create a deluge of rain.

I was just reading this and didnt think much of it until somebody mentioned that they "went to look at the sun because of the weird golden glow comming in the window". I did exactly that a couple hours ago. Looked out, sky was kinda a weird colour but figured that was normal and that was that.....till now....creepy....

Re: Happening Now: Detroit Sky RED
I've seen the yellow tinted skies before, but never anything red like that! The 'red sky at night" rhyme refers to sunrises and sunsets folks, not with storms developing overhead. It's an indicator of what's to come in the morning or later that day.

Well that was the vibe I got, could be wrong......but didn't care for that usage.
 Quoting: ajk


That is the silliest thing I've ever heard. Do you campaign against nativity displays at Christmas time too?

"Wrath of Goddy" means it is like what I'd imagine Wrath of God to look like. It doesn't literally mean "Wrath of God."

The whole purpose of adding "dy" to the end is to make this dinstinction.

That said, Jesus is your only hope and salvation. Get some.

1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
