Ophelia causes red sun phenomenon

The phenomenon was initially seen in the United Kingdom before spreading to other areas. The red appearance of the sun is due to Ophelia dragging in tropical air and dust from the Sahara. The dust gets picked up into the air and goes high up into the atmosphere. The particles in the air cause blue light to scatter, leaving longer-wavelength red light to shine through. Debris from forest fires burning in Portugal and Spain is also playing a part.
