Red Sky at Night

Most of us have heard “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailors take warning”. But did you know that Shakespeare and Jesus also make reference to red skies?
(Matthew XVI: 2-3,) 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.”
Shakespeare, in Venus and Adonis. “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.”
