Sunrise, sunset and smoke-filled skies

The sky in the Buffalo area has appeared to be cloudy and hazy lately at sunrise and sunset. The National Weather Service in Buffalo says the red muted sky was not clouds but smoke from the wildfires out west. Leftover smoke, dust and ash picked up by the jet stream have moved across the country creating conditions that make the sun appear as a reddish ball on the horizon.
