Multiple residents of San Francisco have posted videos and images of their city plunged into an eerie red twilight due to smoke particles from nearby wildfires that are raging across the state and much of the Pacific Northwest.

Videos show various scenes of the city cloaked in a red filter created by smoke particles in the atmosphere, which scatter blue light, and only allow yellow, orange, and red parts of the spectrum to reach the surface.

NBC Bay Area news anchor Raj Mathai wrote “Simple. Bizarre. ‘Smoke particles scatter blue light & only allow yellow-orange-red light to reach the surface, causing skies to look orange.’ – Air Quality District.”

Others posted videos from their homes, streets, and offices.

Authorities now say one of the fires currently raging in the state was sparked by a “smoke-generating pyrotechnic device” used for an expecting mother’s gender reveal party, according to a press release. San Bernardino police noted “Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be financially and criminally responsible.”
