sunsets. did you see yesterday. >> yes. >> as i was discussing the recent sunsets with my dad, i mentioned sar kass trickcally sa maybe the decrease of the commute has cleared the atmosphere and this is what a sunset should look like. there's the picture she sent. laura evans had pictures on twitter. >> i had them sent to my facebook page and twitterr account. >> two nights ago, i think itth was as i was washing dishesshes looking out my kitchen window and saw these spectacular. >> you were washing dishes?? >> yes. >> that was the headline there. you heardhe it. it. >> you wash dishes. >> yes, of course i do. >> you help out around the the house. >> you're missing the point. >> i saw and there's trees if my backyard so i got my son and myd wife and we jump in the car and drove someplace where we cane have a clearer view. it was beautiful. >> i was out of town for a few
days. flew in last night and theth sunset was unbeliefabl unbelievn west, it was just incredible. >> has she hit on something? n maybe indirectly. i can't tie it into, you know, less cars being on the road one or one, but typically there are several sort of criteria youeri need for vibrant sunsets and sunrises for that matter. why don't we walk through those. first of all, it's sort of i'mim looking to the right word. >> misunderstood. >> misunderstood n thank you,yo, tony that pollutants enhancence sunsets and sunrises. >> yeah, many people do. >> they actually subdue it. in the summer months when we gee the humid air in place. we get the smog that develops, we get the mist and the clouds that holds back our sunrises and sunsets. the best time of year in mid latitudes, that includes us is s fall and winter.
>> fewer pollutants in the air. >> the air is moving along with the clearer atmosphere, clear skies actual wil actually enhans and sunsets, threat the most important ingredient. in >> the first spectacular wasspea right after the cold front came through that had all the rain and everything, and the air wasa clearer ask cooler. >> yes. >> i guess it wasn't a question, right? >> that was an observation, right in. >> in fact, that is true. >> most importantly, clean air. so in the summer months, you know -- and it plays to what she mentioned being about less carss on the roads. >> now may i ask you another question? you can ask as many as you want. >> it's ask tony and tucker not tony ask tucker. >> the other one.on >> especially if you go out on n saturday night.
>> the clouds, the clouds factos into this as well, right? rit? >> yes, absolutely. in>> y fact, tony, you need higi clouds. to enhance the sunset and you can see, you can really see in that picture nicely the e way that the sun rays get scattered, we can see different wave lengths and you get the red hughes in the last couple of days. you need the high cloudiness for that. the cloud are lower in the sky,, it tends to have a sunlight so i you don't get the vibrant colors that you see there. let me mention the sun angle, the sun is low in the sky, and next couple of weeks, we shouldl get spectacular sunsets and sunrises, it's been magnificent. >> it has been. >> i love this time. >> thank you, everybody who seny in pictures, we got dozens of pictures. >> keep them coming. >> yeah, fantastic and a lot of tweets, remember you can tweet me now at tony perkins t.v. what is your twitter handle.
