UK: Storm Ophelia turns the sky orange across Newcastle and UK

Weather Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom - 16 October 2017

The sky over Newcastle and across the United Kingdom appeared to glow orange and yellow on October 16, 2017 in a strange phenomenon caused by Storm Ophelia. Stunning images of the so-called "red sun" were shared by people across the country as they compared the weather to looking through tinted glasses. According to experts at the Met Office, the rare spectacle was caused by Storm Ophelia pushing warm air from Africa northwards, and with it came Saharan dust. As the air moved north towards Ireland and the UK, it gathered smoke and tiny debris from recent wildfires in Spain and Portugal.
