Sunset in Ephraim

EPHRAIM — If you think the sunsets have been particularly stunning the past week or so, your eyes aren’t tricking you.

Those lucky enough to make it to the waterfront on the Green Bay side shortly after 8:30 p.m. have been treated to a view of a fiery red sun sinking below the horizon.

According to the national Weather Service, smoke from Canadian wildfires north of the Minnesota arrowhead is flowing down through Wisconsin, causing the unusually milky glow at sunset.

The moon also has taken on an orange glow thanks to the fires.

Watch for a colorful sunset again this evening.
