Residents in Northeast Ohio felt the effects of the California wildfires on Sunday. 

If you noticed the sky was hazy over the weekend, that's because smoke from the wildfires created an overcast that could be seen on weather satellites from Lake Erie to Pittsburgh. 

The National Weather Service in Cleveland predicted the hazy skies would make for a beautiful reddish sunset on Sunday evening.

News 5 photographer Brian Sobolewski captured the bright red sun setting over Lake Erie.

Smoke was seen high in the western hemisphere on the National Weather Service radar.
