It was a scene right out of an ‘end of the world’ movie as the sky turned red under a thick layer of fog in the Chinese city of Zhoushan. A number of videos were posted by the citizens of the city and there was considerable panic among them as the phenomenon is not common in the region.
 

There was a lot of chatter on the social media as many users called it ‘beautiful’ while others went on to call it ‘apocalyptic’. There were also mentions of a Japanese study in 2017 which said that a number of countries experienced a red sky back in 1770 due to a huge solar activity.
 

Local reports said that refraction and scattering of light was the reason behind the mysterious red sky in Zhoushan, which is situated in China's Zhejiang Province and is quite close to Shanghai.
 

"When weather conditions are good, more water in the atmosphere forms aerosols which refract and scatter the light of fishing boats and create the red sky seen by the public," the staff of the meteorological bureau said according to reports from the local Chinese media.
 

The state-owned media CCTV also got in touch with a local fishing company who confirmed that the light belonged to one of their boats and refraction caused the thick cover of fog to turn red.
 

浙江舟山现“漫天红光”

5月7日,浙江舟山出现罕见红色天空,景象令人震撼。当地居民纷纷惊叹:“这是什么天气啊?”“天怎么了?”。
 

如此“天降异象”,是怎么了?网上有各种猜测,是天象?火灾?还是危化品爆炸产生的火光?还有人猜想,是不是哪里的火山喷发了。当地消防部门表示,没有接到火情报告,排除了火灾、爆炸之类。
 

据悉,此次红色天空是光的一种折射现象,其光源是码头当时停着的一艘船内的红色灯光。
 

据专家介绍,海边的天变红是比较常见的,只是这一次特别红而已。至于为什么这么红,据舟山广电调查显示,事发位置正好是舟渔公司码头,码头当时停着一艘捕捞北太秋刀鱼的远洋船,红色灯光是秋刀鱼船的灯光,红、黄这两种颜色的光波长是可见光中最长的两种,穿透力强,加上空气中悬浮水汽多,就出现这种“诡异现象”。
