The sky was glowing in purple when the light from a nearest marijuana farm filled the sky over Snowflake, Arizona, with a strange, purple glow on a recent foggy morning.
The local resident, Cara Smith took a picture of the happening on Friday morning while she was on her way to work at Copperstate Farms, the largest medical marijuana wholesaler in the state.
“The purple lights are always there but don’t usually light up the sky like this,” she told CNN. “It had snowed that morning and was still very foggy and cloudy.”
Snowflake is located in Navajo County, Arizona, which is approximately 175 miles northeast of Phoenix and 50 miles southwest of the Petrified Forest National Park.
Some people assumed that the purple light is because of the light pollution, while others said it was pretty.
Copperstate Farms has 40 acres of greenhouses — about the size of 30 football fields — that use a combination of red and blue lights at night to help its plants grow, according to a company spokeswoman.
The lights look purple from a distance, but it’s normally nothing like this.
Water droplets in the low-lying fog reflected the light, which made it spread across the sky.
The farm has 70 strains of cannabis in production and another 40 in development and has been growing crops since 2017.
