Readers' photos of our delightful winter sky

The warm glow was a rather nice distraction from cold weather.

THE SHEPHERDS WERE absolutely delighted this evening when they looked up and saw the pretty red, pink, and sometimes purple glow in the sky.

It seems like the rest of you approved of it as well and we’ve collected some of your pictures from around the country.
