That first pic is nothing, eventually 270+degrees of the sky looked like that here in the South East of Canberra (the fires are on the whole west side of Canberra)

The wind has since died down and just looking outside now you can actually see stars, where as earlier the sun was completely blacked out.

2 lives so far lost
~100 homes lost
~2000-5000 people evacuated
25% of ACT without power
