Moon burns red from wildfires

It was not only record heat on Monday reaching 108 degrees, but wildfires west of Claremont impacted air quality as huge clouds of smoke covered the Southland. Early in the evening a full “strawberry moon” popped up from the horizon, colored in deep red early on, then getting brighter as the moon rose in the sky. The color of the moon was also influenced from the smoke still lingering from wildfires. Our weather will remain warm in the 90s until the weekend, where high temperatures will cruise past the 100 degree mark starting Saturday. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
