8 January 2022
The sky has been moody in the past three weeks, sometimes clear, often overcast. Here are four of its many moods.
Twenty-four hours of warm weather produced summer-like clouds (above) and strong winds on 5 January 2022.
A fiery red sunrise on Christmas Eve in Smithfield, Virginia looked like a forest fire through the trees. Fortunately it was not!
The clear sky glowed before sunrise on the day before the winter solstice, 20 Dec 2021.
Half an hour later, the full moon glowed in the west as sunrise touched the hilltops.
