    During sunrise, the sky turned a beautiful red on Friday. But how does that red color come about? The meteorologists of Weerplaza have an explanation for. According to the meteorologists, the red is created because the sunlight is refracted by millions of small water droplets suspended in the atmosphere.

    In the morning, the sun’s rays have to travel a longer way through the atmosphere, because the sun is further away from the earth at that time. Due to that distance, the sunlight is scattered by the water droplets. The red tones are the least sensitive to this, so those colors are clearly visible.
