Smoke from Canadian and U.S. wildfires have spread across the skies of many western, central, and Midwest U.S. states over the last few weeks.

The smoke may dim the sun and create colorful sunrises and sunsets. The smoke layer is primarily 10,000 to 20,000 feet above the ground, but sometimes reaches the surface.
