It is because of the “fine particulate matter” which the authorities were talking about earlier and by authorities, we mean the Department of Environmental Protection of Pennsylvania as they have issued an alert for the air quality which they did on Tuesday and that is the reason that there is a reddish theme in the atmosphere.
