"Bloody" sunset in Philippines
- jccarp, CNN iReport producer
It has been a while that I saw such phenomenon. And I was allured to watch the sunset.
I was told that the color red in the skies and sunset is the result of “Rayleigh scattering.” The sky is red because the blue light scattered during the day is too diluted, and the red light normally not scattered much is so spread that we can see it.
I read that this is a normal atmospheric phenomena and the public don’t need to worry. This is not "Red Sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning." Though we know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but we cannot interpret the signs of the times.
