KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT) — We noticed an unbelievable dawn this morning. Lovely colours lit up our morning sky. Take a look at a few of these pictures from our viewers!
Sunrises aren’t usually this vibrant and colourful. So what’s the science behind these attractive sunrises?
I’m positive you will have heard the sayings: “Crimson sky within the morning, Sailors take warning,” and “Crimson sky at evening, Sailors delight!”
This morning, we’re ready on rain to maneuver in from the west. When we’ve storms approaching the world, and if we’ve sufficient of a break within the clouds out to the east to permit gentle to shine by way of, it scatters and is mirrored off the clouds.
This scattering and reflection of the sunshine is what provides us the reds and pinks throughout dawn, like what we noticed this morning.
Quite the opposite, if you’re getting these vibrant colours at evening, storms are shifting away from the world. The sunshine from the sundown scatters and displays off the departing clouds, giving us the gorgeous colours within the night.
