Looking at all the pictures

Looking at all the pictures one thing I noticed is the low hanging clouds which I assume were due to the massive humidity levels. All the varying cloud heights and extra moisture in the air really combined to make it a spectacular sunset.

That old rhyme...

By on

"Red skies at night, sailor's delight.
Red sky at morn, sailors be warned!"

My grandma explained it to me as a very red and vivid sunset as the aftermath of a storm, and a prediction of pleasant weather for the next day.

On the other hand, vivid red sunrises were a warning of rain or worse to come for the day.
