The sun looks like the end of the world right now, and here’s why
Shepherd’s warning, right guys
Up and down the country, people will have been shocked to wake up on a Monday, see a red sun and find the apocalypse looks to have come.
Fortunately, there's plenty of 2017 left to be had, and the weird sepia hue in the sky is just down to weather.
Strong winds are pulling sand from the Sahara up, presumably exacerbated by a lack of rains down in Aaaaafrica.
Students in Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Bristol, and just about anywhere you can think of have spotted the weird red sun.
And of course, everyone's taking photos of it.

Light refracting off the dust particles gives it a longer, redder wavelength, bathing campuses in the sepia hue.
Hurricane Ophelia, the storm sweeping the nation with 80 mile per hour winds, has also been cited as causing the red sky.
No word on how long the spooky sky will last for, so get your instas while you can.
