WEST SEATTLE SKY: Smoky sunset, moon

The Bolt Creek Fire to the east is still sending smoke this way, and that has worsened air quality, as shown on both the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency and PurpleAir maps. But it’s also intensified the sunset color, as shown in James Bratsanos‘ photo from tonight (above). Meantime. Eddie caught the moon with a bit of a tinge last night:

The fire is currently about a third contained, according to this update.

    I canceled my evening run due to the Air Quality Index being over 80.

    The Moon was an extra juicy orange just before it set last night. I took a quick phone shot through my tiny telescope from Weather Watch Park.
