8 October 2022

Sunrise and sunset have been very colorful in Pittsburgh lately.

On 6 October the sky was clear with some thin clouds and airplane contrails. The rising sun lit the contrails a hot pink-red. Detail photo above, wide-angle below.

Every day is shorter as sunrise and sunset get closer to each other. By 18 October we will have an hour less of daylight than at the Equinox.

p.s. Unfortunately the sunrise on 6 October many have been colorful because the air was so bad. Everyone in the Mon Valley could smell it. Hydrogen sulfide exceeded the 1-hour limit at the Liberty-Clairton monitor, an exceedance which “can be attributed entirely to emissions from US Steel’s Clairton coking facility.” Read more at
