Any one out in Bristol this evening probably noticed the breathtaking ‘fire sky’ sunset over the city. Bristol Live have been sent several shots by aspiring photographers who captured the stunning golden sky. One was taken in Clifton , where shops and cars were all tinted with a glowing orange as the sun made its descent. Another was snapped in Bedminster, which shows a spectacular yellow sun spreading colour across a darken street. The science behind it According to Grahame Madge from the Met Office , the strong colour changes at sunset are down to the high pressure in the atmosphere trapping dust and small particles, along with medium and high clouds which lets the sunset shine through. As the sun sets in the west, the red light then refracted through the thinning of the clouds, leaving Bristol with a red sky. And if there is a red sunset, it’s a pretty strong indicator that the next day will be dry.
