Is this weather folklore true, or just another "myth" to be busted? And what could it mean? Listen to this mythbusting session to find out!As Sam points out in the episode, red skies get a mention in the Bible and also by Shakespeare! So could there be some truth to it? “Like a red morn that ever yet betokened, Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field, Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds, Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.” Venus and Adonis, Shakespeare. In the Bible, Jesus said, “When in evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: For the sky is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather today; for the sky is red and lowering.” (Matthew XVI: 2-3,)Mythbuster: Sam Illingworth
