Drone footage shows orange skies over San Francisco and Bay Area

On social media and YouTube, many photos and videos have been shared of the ominous-looking, orange skies over San Francisco and the Bay Area. The orange glow is the result of the thick smoke from the raging wildfires in blocking the sunlight.

“Extremely dense & tall smoke plumes from numerous large wildfires, some of which have been generating nocturnal pyrocumulunimbus clouds (‘fire thunderstorms), are almost completely blocking out the sun across some portions of Northern California this morning,” UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain shared on Twitter. 

SF Gate reported earlier today that most of the smoke was high in the atmosphere with air quality at ground level ranging from moderate to quite good.

We have added a few videos with drone footage that shows you how otherworldly the skies in the Bay Area look. Check it out.
