I have been monitoring the California fires using the GEOS-17 satellite that the National Weather Service put up a few years ago.
I have been using the loop viewing function.....
So when the loop is running in the early evening there is a "cloud" over the southern half of the Central Valley, and a bit of it north of Sacramento.
So is this particulate matter reflecting back from the lights below???
I did spend one winter in Coarsegold and was really disappointed at how poor the skies were at night. At the time, I suspected the particulate matter, but not sure that is correct.
Anybody have any ideas?
