    Wink Purple Sky at Night

    Weirdly I looked out the front door today and the sky was purple, madness. I've heard of red sky at night but purple? It only lasted for a short period of time and I got a photo just as it was fading away. Now I know that Little-Miss likes purple but messing with the skys over Auckland, I really wonder where she found the colour settings for it

    P.S. phone camera image does not do the colour justice but gives an idea.

    I'm sure that you would be a benevolent ruler, well in all matters other than the new global colour scheme. At any rate, while you are messing with the sky, can you make it snow??

    What you've got there is the phenomenon popularly know as purple sky phenomenon.

    That one's a few years old, looking out of the gate at my mums about 6am one summers morning with a cuppa and my Astra in bits after working on it all night. I thought it was a) rather pretty and b) possibly a hallucination..heh

    Pfft, I prefer the more traditional 'black sky at night, with twinkly bits'.
