I know science can explain this, but it was the first time I saw the sky like this and I thought it was magical. I took these photos a few weeks ago from my balcony. It was a little after 6 in the morning. (I sent a copy to a friend right away, and he asked if it was photoshopped. This has not been photoshopped. )
My husband said the Chinese call it 火烧云 which literally means “fire burn cloud” or burning clouds. It surely looks like that.
