Volcanic Sunsets: Purple Haze

Steven-Hallgren4

VOLCANIC SUNSETS: The Russian volcano that erupted directly beneath the International Space Station on June 12 is now causing beautiful lavender sunsets across parts of the northern USA and Europe. A plume of ash and sulfur dioxide from the Sarychev Peak eruption is circulating through the stratosphere,  and when parts of the plume pass over an area at sunset, the sky fills with delicate white ripples, sometimes-colorful streamers, and a telltale hue of purple. Check today's edition for observing tips and a photo gallery. SPACE WEATHER
