Ah - those of us in the colonies say Red at Night A Sailor’s Delight, Red in the Morning Sailor Take Warning

Mystery solved - thanks Seabreeze.

I was confused too and now I’m not. :wink: I remember hearing once that there was actually some meteorological evidence to substantiate the saying. For anyone who’s interested in reading.
