I fell off with this particular project. I was up early this morning and decided it was a good day to go check out the track. I missed the spectacular “sailor warning” sky by about 5 minutes.

For centuries, “red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky in morning, sailors warning”, has been a catchy, non scientific was to talk about weather. Turns out there’s some truth to it. Red sunrises reflect light off the water and dust in the atmosphere. (Allaby, Weather Lore c2002)

Shortly after I fired off this shot, the rain rolled in.
