Sun Appears Red as New York is Smothered by Smoke From Wildfires Burnings in Western US

Smoke from wildfires in the western United States drifted across the country and into the tri-state area on Tuesday, July 20, creating a haze over New York City and causing the sun to appear red.

This footage was recorded in Manhattan after officials issued an air-quality health advisory for New York state on Tuesday.

The smoke moved east as large wildfires, fanned by extreme heat and drought, burned in several states including California and Oregon, where the Bootleg Fire had burned over 388,000 acres (about 606 square miles). Credit: Karin Garfin @anewsjunkie via Storyful
