Strange Summer Skies
The Australian bushfires are having an interesting effect on the New Zealand sky. New Year’s Day in this part of the world has been dark, damp, and with a sky of a peculiar hue. This was near a friend’s house at midday today, and bearing in mind that it is the middle of summer here…
Mind you, after the sweltering heat of 2018 and 2019, this weird, non-existent, summer is actually pretty pleasant if you don’t mind the sense that there is something eldritch going on.
Addendum: Here’s a satellite photo, taken about 4 p.m. (New Zealand time), on 1st January:
