According to the "Times" report, when you wake up this morning, Melbourneans will find that the sky is exceptionally beautiful and magnificent, with a large cloud of red and bright orange that are unique at sunrise and sunset.


The temperature was only eight degrees this morning, and the photographer braved the severe cold to take pictures of this breathtaking scenery.

Rod Dickson, senior forecaster for the Bureau of Meteorology, said that when sunlight travels through thicker parts of the atmosphere (such as clouds), it shifts the light and turns to the red spectrum, resulting in a colorful sky. When there are some clouds around, it does make the sky more colorful.


Generally, during volcanic eruptions or other situations like air pollution, the color of the sky is particularly noticeable. However, this is not the case this week. The sunset is particularly spectacular due to the longer dusk in Melbourne.

Mr. Dickson said, “At this time of the year, the sun is below the horizon. If the timing is right, then you can enjoy some particularly beautiful red sunsets.”


According to an old proverb, the appearance of a red sky in the evening indicates that tomorrow will be good weather, and the appearance of a red sky in the morning indicates that it will rain.

Mr. Dickson said that sunset and sunrise have little effect on modern weather forecasts. However, in the 17th century, there was a lack of advanced computer monitoring systems to forecast the weather, so this may be a practical rule of thumb..."

But these ancient claims are not unreasonable. According to these claims, the National Bureau of Statistics predicts that there is a 50% chance of rain in the northwestern suburbs tonight. According to the clouds, it can be predicted that the red sunrise and sunset will not appear until it clears on Saturday.

Leigh Henningham, photo editor of The Times, said the key is to first make sure you can see the horizon clearly.

Use the automatic mode of the camera (including smartphones) to capture beautiful and full colors according to the brightness of the sky.

Once you have set the brightness and composition, press the capture button. Then you can upload it to social media at will.
