#yegwx, — Aaron Talbot (@tibbitytalbs) August 15, 2018, No sky. But light, to me, remains an amazing mystery. This process is called Rayleigh scattering and is the same reason why sunsets are often lovely warm colours: with the sun low in the sky, sunlight passes through a thicker layer of the atmosphere which serves as a filter. At the time, scientists assumed the strange effect was caused by the volcanic dust. In a new study, scientists found that noctilucent clouds have an extraterrestrial link. People shared images on social media of a sky turned hazy orange by smoke … I mentioned in my blog that day that this was the result of smoke from wildfires, blowing in from BC (the main origin) and eastern Washington. Getty. This is the same spot… But a very different sky today. Took a look on radar... wow, there were some powerful cells dumping there last night! Tried to see if any aurora activity would be visible from Lake Forest Park (a long stretch given the forecast, urban light pollution and an obscured horizon.) #yeg #smoke, — Steven Sandor (@stevensandor) August 15, 2018, It looks like the apocalypse outside right now…#yeg #smoke #orangesky pic.twitter.com/pMVyv3AP37, — Colin Carriere (@ColinCarriere) August 15, 2018, #yeg #edmonton #bcwildfire https://t.co/1qKwb8w8z4 pic.twitter.com/Zdp2yhk2rh, Heading to work in #yeg today. Fletcher Kent reports. There was a problem. Other mysteries of these night-shining clouds have scientists scratching their heads, including why noctilucent clouds are brightening and spreading. "Noctilucent clouds might look alien, but they're telling us something very important about our own planet," Russell said. Why did smoke cause the a reddish sun? #smoke #nofilter #mytwose, A post shared by TELUS World of Science Edm (@twosedm) on Aug 15, 2018 at 10:27am PDT. New York, Orange sun shining through thick smoke in the air over southeast Edmonton on August 15, 2018. pic.twitter.com/pn0Pd7IyHe, — Nevin deMilliano (@SwiftChaser) August 15, 2018, Went to sleep playing Fallout 4. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scatteringthis is a helpful link, check out the radar animation from 12:00 utc to 15:15 utc over Vancouver Island this morning (8/5) I've never seen a rotation like that, Hi Cliff,The UW probability forecast has seemed off lately--with predicted high temps seemingly higher than the NWS forecast, news organizations and actual high temps. (I haven't actually charted the data--so this could be impression error.....) Nancy. The dusty particles attach to water molecules that assemble into ice crystals in a process known as "nucleation.".

As a particle gets bigger and bigger it starts to behave more like a glass ball: almost all light goes through, very little sideways scatter. I don't like it. Good news for aurora fans:http://www.gedds.alaska.edu/auroraforecast/"Forecast:Auroral activity will be active. I mean, I guess it's intuitive but science doesn't proceed by intuition -- when short wavelength light encounters a particle that's about the same size as one cycle then it somehow can deflect (scatter) that light more easily than if the same light hit a larger particle...? Particles much smaller than light act like a radiating dipole. I think I saw a crow's head rotate and a person explode into a horde of demons. Please read our Commenting Policy first. Receive mail from us on behalf of our trusted partners or sponsors? San Francisco residents awoke on Wednesday to an orange sky, like something out of the apocalypse. "We've detected bits of 'meteor smoke' imbedded in noctilucent clouds," James Russell, an atmospheric scientist at Hampton University in Hampton, Va., said in a statement. Watch below: Global meteorologist Jesse Beyer has the weather forecast for Edmonton and surrounding areas for Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018. "When methane makes its way into the upper atmosphere, it is oxidized by a complex series of reactions to form water vapor," Russell said. Inbetween there are some interesting physics known as Lorenz-Mie scattering. #yegwx #abstorm #apocalypticyeg pic.twitter.com/FobMp6a30G, — Karen Bartko (@KarenBartko) August 15, 2018, Can #yeg please turn off the Trump filter. This graphic shows how methane, a greenhouse gas, boosts the abundance of water at the top of Earth's atmosphere. Many regions were expected to reach a 10+ later Wednesday. “This process is called Rayleigh scattering and is the same reason why sunsets are often lovely warm colours: with the sun low in the sky, sunlight passes through a thicker layer of the atmosphere which serves as a filter. This water freezes around "meteor smoke" to form icy noctilucent clouds. No northern lights, but the lightning from the thunderstorms around Maple Valley was pretty impressive even from Seattle. PHOTOS: Bay Area Sky Turns Orange … The smoke is so thick you cannot see downtown today from 50th street footbridge. Rare and mysterious clouds that are so bright they can be seen at night have mystified people since they were first observed more than a century ago, but scientists have now discovered a key cosmic ingredient for these night-shining clouds: "smoke" from meteors as they burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. As Earth travels along its orbit, the planet scoops up material. #Smoke #yeg #yegwx #abstorm #apocalypticyeg pic.twitter.com/m6I4tC2wUG, — Global Edmonton (@GlobalEdmonton) August 15, 2018, Everyone in #YEG this morning: pic.twitter.com/geMKRdHwFc, I saw this posted somewhere else and had to do one too. In need of refurbishment. The poor air quality was expected to continue into Thursday. Backhouse noticed ghostly filaments glowing blue against the black sky. Based on AIM data, the researchers determined that ice crystals can grow around meteor dust to sizes of approximately 20 to 70 nanometers. Nucleation is common in Earth's lower atmosphere, where dust can act as similar gathering points for ice crystals, drops of water and snowflakes to grow around them. You will receive a verification email shortly. Methane has been found to increase the formation of noctilucent clouds. In these conditions, it's unusual for two water molecules to meet, let alone stick together. #yeg #yegbike #yeg pic.twitter.com/8oF4cx0oIq, — Andrew Bieman (@AndrewBieman) August 15, 2018. #yeg pic.twitter.com/RW5BCoOcWy, — Tyler Hardeman (@wunderbar) August 15, 2018, So what is it they say about yellow sky in the morning? I think it is something like "go back to bed". Space is part of Future US Inc, an international media group and leading digital publisher. So small particles scatter short wavelengths, and larger particles scatter longer wavelengths? Please deactivate your ad blocker in order to see our subscription offer. The sun is also dimmer, because the smoke scatters the light. The researchers say it is no coincidence that noctilucent clouds form within this region of meteor smoke. In 1885, about two years after the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa erupted, night sky observers around the world were treated to spectacular sunsets. Follow SPACE.com on Twitter @Spacedotcom. On Wednesday morning, large sections of the province were at a 10 or 10+ on the scale, including: Edmonton, Calgary, Airdrie, Bruderheim, Caroline, Elk Island, Genesee, Hinton, Redwater, and Bonnyville areas. Must pick up in Edmonton. — The Broke Girl Blog (@thebrokebloggr) August 15, 2018, I wish I could take a pic from my downtown office but it honestly feels like the middle of the night.

Blue-white clouds that eerily glow in the twilight sky are called noctilucent clouds, or NLCs. According to Russell, the reason for this is climate change. Will accept trade offers. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d woken up in a nuclear wasteland on Wednesday morning in Edmonton, where the sky was an eerie orange hue due to thick wildfire smoke that has drifted in from B.C. My lungs can tell. Our inner solar system is full of meteoroids ranging from huge chunks of rock to microscopic flecks of dust. They typically form about 50 to 53 miles (80 and 85 kilometers) above ground in the atmosphere, at altitudes so high that they reflect light even after the sun has slipped below the horizon. If so, noctilucent clouds could be an indicator for the presence of methane, one of the main greenhouse gases. #yeg #yegwx #smoke #Apocalypse pic.twitter.com/1aFa9VG4YE, — Cake Raptor (@Raptor_Chick) August 15, 2018, Today’s practice has been moved to the field house because we’ve seen the movie Silent Hill.
