I took this photo earlier this week on my latest adventure exploring the Huron-Manistee national forest in northern Michigan.
Smoke from the western wildfires is now being propelled across the entire country by jet stream air currents traveling between 25,000 and 35,000 feet above the ground. The pollution recently reached the east coast.
According to the reports I’ve read, the smoke is not considered a health threat. However, it is making noticeable changes in the sky.
The sky now appears hazy and smokey and is especially noticeable at sunset.
I can’t remember a time when I have ever seen a sunset like this. I could look directly at the sun like I was looking at the same light intensity of a full moon. It was both spectacular and eerie.
