    The brown smog is called photochemical smog and it happens because of the action of sunlight on air pollutants. It’s a pretty complex chemical reaction, but it’s a reaction from pollutants like CO, hydrocarbons, and oxides of nitrogen that react with UV rays. Sunlight maximizes the color around mid-day and evenings, particularly in the summer and fall months.
