what is the truth of red sky
Zhoushan’s Bureau of Meteorology responded to these speculations, saying that there was nothing supernatural in the incident. He said the fog was very high and the clouds were at a low altitude. This is a phenomenon caused by the refraction of light. According to state media CCTV, a local fishing company has confirmed that the light was refracted by their fishing boats. The company’s deputy manager said that this red light was coming from our fishing boats. We have to turn these on while fishing. When these lights are lit, they go into the sky after hitting the water. But due to fog, it started looking red. This is very common in coastal areas.
