The Orange Sun

gold sunThis mid-morning I captured the sun because it was so different. It resembled a flash light. It was almost piercing as I tried to look straight into it. I was on the Senior bus when I saw it, so I snapped a photo.

When I got home I wanted to know what caused the orange color, so of course I googled it and found this information.


The lower the Sun is in the sky the more atmosphere the sunlight has to pass through. The atmosphere is full of tiny particles, dusts pollens and an endless supply of pollutants and these cause the distortion of light we misguidedly call “a beautiful sunset”


I have seen orange sunsets, but have never seen an orange sun in the day time. Anyone want to voice their thoughts?
