SkyWatch Friday: Saharan Sunset

I guess this one belongs in the "one more thing to worry about" file.

Here in central Texas for the past couple of weeks, we've been inundated with clouds of dust all the way from the Sahara desert. People (like me) who have respiratory problems are being encouraged to stay indoors on the days when it's really thick. So if the pandemic doesn't keep us home, the dust is there to give it a try.

But even though it's made breathing a little tough at times, it's also provided a few really spectacular sunsets. I have to run outside, take a quick photo, and then run back in, but I've managed to get a few shots.

That tiny silver dot at the top of this photo is the moon.
