The sunset from here was magnificent.  Gold skies over Jersey and all the west-facing buildings in Manhattan reflecting a gold light.  There really is a majesty in nature.

I think there is a saying "Red sky at night, a sailors delight".

I remember it as "Orange At Night Fishermans Delight"

In Matthew 16:2b3, Jesus says:

When it is evening, you say, "It will be fair weather; for the sky is red."
And in the morning, "It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening."

As an old USAF meteorologist, I can assure you that this adage has been used to forecast the weather for more than 2,000 years.  In more modern times, it became:

Red sky at night, sailors' delight.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.

It is based on the reddish glow of the morning or evening sky, caused by haze or clouds related to storms in the region. If the morning skies are red, it is because clear skies over the horizon to the east permit the sun to light the undersides of moisture-bearing clouds. The saying assumes that more such clouds are coming in from the west. Conversely, in order to see red clouds in the evening, sunlight must have a clear path from the west, so therefore the prevailing westerly wind must be bringing clear skies.

It only works in the mid-latitudes, where the prevailing winds blow from west to east.

That's the first clear, concise and understandable definition of the saying that I've ever heard.  Thanks, raybrag.
