Wildfire Smoke

There are a ton of wildfires burning in Oregon and Washington right now. A lot of the smoke from these has been getting sucked into the Columbia Gorge because of wind patters, causing the gorge to fill with smoke. Here’s what the smoke looked like last night:

There was so much smoke in the sky that it created a haze, making the moon appear to be orange.

The smoke was so thick that it looked like wintry fog in the streetlights. It’s even visible in headlights!

Isn’t it strange how something so devastating can be aesthetically appealing?
