Cumbria Crack

Hurricane Ophelia turns the Sun red over Cumbria

L-R: Red sun over Cliburn by Declan Morland and sun over Carlisle by Paul Grindley

[W]ith the weather being as it has been for the last few weeks, seeing anything of the sun in Cumbria has been a rarity but today an even bigger rarity has been seen.

It is all linked to Hurricane Ophelia along with some sand from the Sahara desert and wildfires in Europe it has all mixed together to create the very rare sight of a Hurricane Sun, when the sun goes very red / orange.
