"Red Sky at Night, Sailors Delight"

Acrylic on Canvas.   

It is talked about in the bible, Shakespeare wrote about it.

As a sailor, this is a very wise tale.  To understand why

"Red Sky at Night, Sailors Delight" we have to

understand a little about the weather.  Usually weather

moves from west to east.  The colors we see in the sky are due to the rays

of sunlight being split into colors of the sprectrum as they pass through the

atmosphere and ricochet of the water... When we see a red sky at

night, this means that the setting sun, is sending it's light through a high

concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and

stable air coming from the west....meaning basically good weather will follow...
