Clouds and a Hawaiian sunset not the California wildfires

It is a part of our daily lives now. Fake news and pictures on the Internet. It is baffling to me why someone would want to share information that is factually incorrect, but the lure of "likes," "shares," and "retweets" is addictive I suppose. Recently, a picture was getting around the Internet of a deck of altocumulus clouds over an eery reddish-orange glow. It was being shared as the California wildfires. It is not (Where is the smoke?). It's a sunset.
