The Sunset Splendor of Ozone

This glorious picture of the sunset by Eschipul
in Houston reveals a sky flooded with ozone, a form of airborne
pollution. In fact, the American Lung Association just ranked Houston
number 5 for ozone pollution in its annual list of most polluted
cities. Pollution makes sunsets extra-beautiful, as you can see in the
two other sunsets (below) from more “winners” on the ALA’s list.

Baton Rouge, which you can see here, glows in the particulate matter of its pollution. Dentalben took this photo. It’s the tenth most ozone-ridden city in the U.S.

And it should be no surprise to anyone that Los Angeles is the most
polluted with ozone. Here is a beautiful view of LA, showing off the
dreamy, weird layer of gunk that hovers in a brown band over the city. Steven Buss took this photo.
