Ok so i was sound asleep, three or four hours into it, when my roomie knocks on my door and tells me to come look at the sun (he was out the door, on his way to work). So i stumble out, and it is deeeep pink, almost blood red. I scramble to find cameras, all i can find is a disposable camera and i snapped a bunch of photos, will have to wait to get it developed. Found my roomies digital and took a couple photos but you can barely make out the true color in it.
So i will post two photos, one unaltered and one with the redness increased to show you the color i am seeing right now with the naked eye:

The second photo, the background sky is the same color as picture one, however the sun is that exact same color! When i get my disposable developed hopefully the color will be 'normal'

Sonny, we had this in NW Saskatchewan this evening as well, the sun well before it was setting, had the sky in a peach/orange on the horizon. The sun again was blood red and the sun had lit the area immediately surrounding it. The clouds opposite in the SE were red as well. This might be just a reflection of the sun on the clouds, but we don't usually get this sort of reflection either, usually just an arc from SW to NE.

Several forest fires are raging in British Columbia. As to how close they are to you, Preston, I don't know. See the article below:
Tinder-dry forests keep fire crews busy
B.C.'s forest fire crews are busy for the B.C. Day long weekend as dry weather throughout July turned forest floors into tinder boxes. On Friday, 64 new fires were sparked, 10 of them by people, the rest by lightning. The Cariboo is the most fire-plagued region in the province, with 31 active fires. Forty kilometres south of Williams Lake, the
1,800- hectare Dog Creek fire continues to be the biggest challenge in the region. Although an evacuation order and alert remains in effect for residents in the area, fire crews have built a guard around a large portion of the fire.

The largest fire in the area is near Pelican Lake, where about 2,500 hectares have burned. Evacuation notices have also been issued in the sparsely populated area. Meanwhile, Kamloops is under smoky skies thanks to winds pushing smoke down from the Cariboo region. Also, the Jade wildfire, estimated at 1,248 hectares, continues to burn with only 15 per cent of it contained. An interface fire located at the southeast end of Bonaparte Lake, north of Kamloops, started Wednesday afternoon, prompting an evacuation of 60 homes that put between 100 to 125 people out of their homes. The order remains in place for the east side of the lake. Residents on the westerly half were allowed to return home Friday, but the Thompson-Nicola Regional District warned an evacuation alert or order may be reissued if the situation worsens. Fire information officer Michaela Swan said most properties around the lake are seasonal residences.

There are now 88 firefighters, seven helicopters and 14 pieces of heavy equipment being used to battle the blaze.
Kamloops fire officials observed fairly quiet fire behaviour Friday and yesterday. Winds were calm and temperatures were lower because smoke in the area blocked out the sun. Provincewide, nearly 40,000 hectares of forest have burned in 1,016 fires to date. According to the forest service's fire statistics over the past 10 years, this fire season is on pace to be an average one. The province's forests were spared this spring with wet, cold weather. Because of an extremely dry July, however, the forest service is on high alert. Campfire fire bans are in place across the province with the exception of the Kootenays. One only needs to look at Environment Canada reports to understand how dry it is. Victoria had just one millimetre of rain in July -- far less than the 19 mm it receives on average. Kamloops was 1.2 C warmer than average in July and it had just 12 mm of rain, well short of the usual 30 mm. It has been dry up north as well. Fort St. John, which usually receives 83 mm of rain, only saw 36.5 mm. It was also nearly two degrees warmer. Not even the typically showery northern coast of Vancouver Island has been spared. In Port Hardy, rainfall was just 5.8 mm, a fraction of the regular 54.4 mm it usually receives.

I am in Victoria BC, could be from forest fires in the interior, i will check the news to see if anything is going on. I would expect a more 'orange' sky if it was from fire though.
The sun right now, it is noon here, is a weird yellow/orange color now with the backdrop being overcast, like this morning during sunrise. Very odd indeed!

What is your location? This reminds me of when we have a lot of particles in the air from forest fires. I know there are a lot of areas being effected by them right now. Even when there are fires out in CA, we can get red sunrises/sets like this here in the Black Hills (SD), from the amount of particles in the atmosphere. It usually happens this time of year into October.

It's too early to see the sunrise at 4am approximatley, but the sun sets have been blood red, almost neon, with the sky after it sets the cloudes peach pink with little colour in the sky itself.
