Where does the amber-colored haze is originating from?

The fires were started in southeastern Siberia by farmers burning fields. On April 14, extreme winds joined and the flames grew out of control destroying villages and killing people in the region.

The fine particles contained in the smoke have been picked by atmospheric winds and carried across the Pacific Ocean reaching parts of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

The reason for these fiery red sunset is a result of smoke particles filtering out colors from the sunlight like greens, blues, yellows and purples.

Therefore, red and orange penetrate the air unfiltered thus creating amazing sunrises and sunsets.

And take as more as you can from this incredible phenomenon: When the smoke dissipates, then these incredible sunsets will lose their intensity!
