ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — New York has been met with a smoky haze coming down from Canadian wildfires for the better part of a week. While the haze has caused suboptimal air quality readings, the scenery in some areas is comparable to Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.

Residents from the Capital Region and beyond have noticed and captured some visually stunning images.
