Why A Volcanic Eruption In Chile Is Turning Brazil's Sky Purple

This is what a sunset in Rio de Janeiro looks like right now, and it’s all thanks to that volcano erupting in Chile last week. Calbuco spewed 210 million cubic metres of ash into the atmosphere, turning nearby regions into a “grey desert” and altering weather thousands of miles away.
