The sun seems kinda high in the sky for a sunset
. The colours are quite nice though - they look calm, not angy.
The reason why our sky turns red, is because at a low angle, the beams of light are passing through more of the atmosphere. This means that more particles of matter (pollution) in the atmo are blocking the light beams, so only the longer wavelengths (red end of spectrum) get through. The same effect can happen at any time of the day, depending on the level of pollution in the area. Smoggy cities, or smoke from forest fires can also cause this.
In a Star Warsy planet, perhaps this planet just naturally has more floating debris in the air?
This concludes my psuedo science lesson for the day
