This is so eerie.

The wildfires in Canada are so intense that they have now spread to New York City, and during Tuesday night’s game at Yankee Stadium between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox, it created an absolutely bizarre scene that had to have fans saying their prayers.

Big Apple skies are now completely fogged up because of more than 400 wildfires currently burning in Canada, according to The New York Times. But it isn’t just NYC that’s dealing with a smoked-out atmosphere, so is the entire northeastern United States. Via The NY Times, the wildfires are affecting a range from Massachusetts to Minnesota, and New York happens to be one of the worst areas hit.

The air quality in the northeast is so bad that the Yankees minor league baseball team in Scranton, Pennsylvania (the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders) even cancelled their Tuesday game, however, the pinstripes decided to go ahead with their game.

Here was the view in the Bronx:

It looks like an alien invasion is about to take place.

But then again, it could be zombies:

The end of the world, an alien invasion, a zombie apocalypse, it doesn’t matter what you think it looks like. It was a scene that would give you chills if you were in attendance. (RELATED: Oh No! Kid’s Head Slams The Ground After Father (Who Was Holding Him) Goes For Foul Ball And Fails Miserably)

Creepy stuff.
