There is a blood red sun currently hovering Santiago de Chile.
But nobody knows why…
The sun has turned blood red in the sky of Chile on March 9, 2016 baffling residents of the capital.
Is it due to the total solar eclipse on March 9, 2016?
Or is our sun entering another phase of intense storms?
Or is this really our sun shining in this mysterious mist? Wait… That’s sure another sign of the incoming apocalypse!
There is currently a large wildfire in the area of San Felipe. And this red sun phenomenon is actually created by the heavy load of dust and smoke present in the air.
The forest fire increases the concentration of dust and smoke in the atmosphere the sunlight has to travel through. These ‘pollutions’ absorb and scatter the blue wavelengths of sunlight, leaving mostly the yellow, orange, and red wavelengths to reach our eyes.
The old rhyme “Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning” has been taken to mean that a red sunset means the next day will be clear (though there is no concrete proof of that).
