Your chances of seeing a vibrant sunrise or sunset will also go up over the next several months thanks to drier, cleaner air surging southward from Canada behind each passing cold front. During the summertime, the air is heavy, humid and "dirty." The result is a less-vibrant sunrise or sunset. The cleaner, fresh air during the cold months allows more of the color spectrum to reach our eyes without being scattered away! So, the next time you're out and about, check for cirrus clouds. You may just see something you've never seen before!
