The phrase ''red sky at night, sailor''s delight; red sky at morning, sailors take warning'' is a well-known proverb packed with scientific evidence. When the sun is lowest, at sunrise in the east and sunset in the west, its rays hit earth at an angle that changes the way we see its light. Red skies happen when longer, red wavelengths of light are scattered by particles during the light rays longer, lower angle trip through a clear atmosphere. Weather systems in the Northern hemisphere typically move from west to east. Seeing a red sunset in the west means light is passing through a high-pressure system and its clear skies, which will move towards the east the next day. A red sunrise means the clear atmosphere is already in the east moving further away. A low-pressure systemwith its cloudy, rainy weatherwill usually follow.

In honour of #HFXBlueWave and #RDV2017, we''re celebrating the science of sailing. For more facts, check @DalScience on Twitter and Instagram. Sailing relies on a force of naturewind. Many sailors avoid The Doldrums because wind speed can be low enough to stall a boat for days. The Doldrums, meaning state of inactivity, listlessness and stagnation, are located in the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). This band of low pressure around the Earth is about 5 degrees north of the equator. Here, winds blowing from the northeast and winds blowing from the southwest collide, while intense equatorial heat and humidity makes the air rise. As a result, there aren''t many surface winds for sails to catch. See sailing in action at the Tall Ships Parade of Sail 2017.
