Blue skies followed by some rain may have taken Vancouver Island’s smoke advisories away, but BC’s wildfire haze has settled on a new target – all the way across the country.

According to several reports, Nova Scotia has been experiencing smoky skies and a bright red sun caused by British Columbia’s wildfire smoke drifting over to the Maritimes.

“A plume of smoke from fires in Western Canada is moving at high altitude across the Maritimes causing hazy skies and reddish sun,” reads an Environment Canada alert for the Maritimes on Friday afternoon.

However the smoke is not expected to affect air quality and will dissipate soon. But for now, it does make for some breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
