The sun has taken on a reddish hue over much of the northern United States this week, making for a sight to behold.
People from the Midwest to Canada have been posting about the phenomenon on social media, and photos of the fiery red sunset are surreal.
What's really going on here? Meteorologists say the blood-colored sun is the result of haze and smoke from wildfires on the West Coast travelling through the atmosphere. The smoke scatters light, which leads to more vivid sunrises and sunsets.
