The Canadian wildfire season is raging!

And it turns objects in the sky red.

In addition to reddening the Moon, Canadian smoke also dims the sun, allowing big sunspots to pop into view at sunset.

The thick smoke in the upper atmosphere as a result of the wildfires in Canada acts as a filter, which allows to see and capture photos of clusters of sunspots clearly visible on the solar disk.

The Canadian wildfire season is affecting the skies of more than a dozen US states. Its smoke plumes are so large and dense that NASA satellites have been photographing them from space.
