IF you have looked up at the sky today you may have noticed the sun is not its usual yellow self.

Readers have noticed an unusual red glow covering it, which is caused by Ex-hurricane Ophelia dragging up air and dust from the Sahara.

According to the Met Office, the red sun is caused by winds pulling up Saharan dust.

This dust is then reflected and refracted in longer wavelengths, giving a red appearance to the sky.
