Photo gallery of smoky sunlight over Seattle

Many around the Puget Sound area noticed the sky looked a bit weird Sunday with the sunlight more of a brownish/orange akin to a sunset than midday sunshine. It turns out, a decent plume of smoke from wildfires burning in inland British Columbia got caught up on the northerly flow and was pushed over Western Washington. (See more detailed explanation here.)

It not only made for a tangerine tinge to the city during the day, but spectacular sunsets.

First up, check out this time lapse video from Dr. Dale Ireland in Silverdale.

Cool, eh? And here are some of the photos sent in via e-mail or YouNews
