Default THe moon's gone red !!!! (Perth)

It's actually pretty scary! :scared: You can smell the smoke in the air, there is ash floating around and we are about 50km away from it.

Say a pray for the firefighters tonight...

They do an excellent, and often unrecgonised job. Lets hope they can control the latest outbreaks fairly swiftly.

The fires in the hills are now more towards Mundaring Weir, so more North, and I guess that why you guys are getting the ash.
I still haven't seen any ash, but lots and lots in the southern suburbs have.


Going out now to see if I can see the moon.

Well, it's not red from where I see it... or it's changed again.

Can see the smoke to the east though, the city lights are reflecting on it.

Must go to bed now, hope it gets better overnight.

Asked Imogen what she would take with her if we had to get out quick, (she's pretty realistic) she replied "My money and Smudge of course" all heart!

Sleep well everyone

The term for it is " Bushfire Moon " when the sun turns red because of bushfires.

Found it hard to sleep last night as the smell was quite bad here in Joondalup. Our car has conked out and we're waiting for the mechanic to come today, so my thoughts were "We're stuck here!".
I hope the hot weather breaks soon with a spectacular thunder storm; that should help!

We had ash all over our cars in Ocean Reef and the aircon was sucking in smoky air all night.

I'm in Nedlands now and the whole city is covered in smoke ans a strange orangey light.

I just drove from the city down to Maddington. Everywhere is covered, but it's worse than the city down here.
