Smoky Southeastern New Mexico Skies.

A thick plume of smoke aloft is being carried eastward from the West Coast fires into the Desert Southwest and beyond including New Mexico. This layer of smoke is thick enough to show up on satellite images (above) and obscure our normally cobalt blue skies in New Mexico. There were a few cumulus clouds in our afternoon skies yesterday afternoon.

I took the top two photos from our backyard in Carlsbad, New Mexico this morning. The others were shot just west of the city limits of Artesia on US Hwy 82 Friday afternoon. Dense smoke aloft completely obscured the sunset Friday afternoon in Southeastern New Mexico. The last photo I shot was at 6:36 PM MDT and a couple of minutes later the sun was no longer visible. Sunset was at 7:07 PM MDT. You can clearly see that there are no visible sunspots on the sun in the top photo above. 

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
