Sydneysiders have woken to a red haze unlike anything seen before by residents or weather experts, as the sun struggles to pierce a thick blanket of dust cloaking the city this morning.

Callers flooded talkback radio, others hit social networking sites and scores of emails were received from smh.com.au readers as Sydney residents expressed their amazement at this morning's conditions.

    This happens when you're in the center of wildfires. The sky turns red because of the ash in the atmosphere. The ash eventually precipitates to the ground, forming a fine white-colored dust.I don't recommend breathing that atmosphere -- it's quite harsh even for chronic smokers.
