Saharan dust has arrived high in the atmosphere over the Great Lakes region. Sunlight through the dust can create magical skies in Michigan. Here are the 10 best sun scenes from the past few days.
Solar pillars are one way of knowing that you are probably watching a dusty sunrise or sunset. A solar pillar is a trail of sun that springs directly from the sun.
Dusty sunrises and sunsets may not end abruptly. The upper atmosphere will not move much over the next week. The dust in the upper atmosphere now is likely to linger in the upper atmosphere.
Three more batches of Saharan dust are also expected to cross the Atlantic and hover in the US skies over the next week.
There should be plenty of great sunsets and sunrises coming next week, in case you missed it last night.
If you took a great photo of the sunrise or sunset, please submit it here.
