The wildfires burning here in Southern California are many miles from our house yet the smoke in the air reduced the sun to a dimmer brownish-yellow ball. Objects on the ground appeared dim and yellowish. I have blue carpet in the living room and the sunlight falling on it would make it look greenish-yellow. Last night, the moon looked like a great pumpkin in the sky.
I snapped this picture of the sun surrounded by the thick smoke about mid-morning yesterday.
