Very rarely can one see the sun rising and the sun setting in the very same sky from the very same spot at the very same time. I know this happens every day, but it’s not often that I’m awake and free to capture this phenomenon .
This Saturday past (23rd) we had a full moon. I looked up eastwards in the morning sky and captured the orange orb lighting up a golden sky.
Yesterday we had the most horrific haze enveloping our city in its deathly embrace. The unusual cold weather and the increasing levels of pollution made Mumbai’s air quality the 2nd worst in the world. This is what SAFAR, the Ministry of Earth Science’s System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research has to say :
Air Quality Forecast (1-3 days): Levels in µgm-3
We only have our politicians to thank for this sorry state of affairs. And of course the activists who don’t want to change a thing and the builders who want to grab land and the auto manufacturers who want to sell more.
It’s not EARTH that’s suffering but US, the regular man on the street who is slowly choking in the mess he helped create .
I am linking this to SKYWATCH FRIDAY which you should visit for more cheery pictures of skies from around the world.
