Yesterday afternoon the quantity of smoke increased and became orange.
Then six or more airplanes began flying in low circles over our house and into the smoke. From our vantage point it was an incredible airshow.
The planes seemed to have an affect, and after awhile the smoke calmed down considerably.
The sun setting into the fire was a brilliant orange.
These last photos are the sky this morning, which is smoky, but not in such a visible plume, with occasional glimpses of blue. At the moment it is fairly still with a mild breeze.
