The wildfire smoke that turns the sky red in the West has traveled from California to Baltimore and produced incredible sunrise views through the haze on the East Coast, The Baltimore Sun reports.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said the smoke had also hitched a ride on wind currents 15,000 to 20,000 feet above the Earth’s surface to reach New York and cities in the Midwest, including Chicago.

The smoke in Baltimore was said to be too high to create any measurable negative impact on the air quality in Baltimore, according to a meteorologist quoted by The Sun.
