In 1883 the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia erupted and threw a tremendous amount of ash into the air. In the years following the eruption it was reported that there were brilliant sunsets around the world caused by that volcanic ash. I thought of that the other evening as I watched the Sun slide behind the Cariboo Mountains. Our brilliant sunset was caused by the huge amount of ash we have in the air from all of the forest fires still burning in BC.
