The Titanic, which embarked at noon on Wednesday, Apr 10, 1912, from Southampton, England, bound for New York, experienced fine weather on its route. On the fourth day of travel, an unusually powerful dome of high pressure (1,039 mb) kept the skies lucid, fogless, windless, and bitterly cold, and the seas glass-like. Despite the intense high pressure and otherwise crystal-clear conditions, however, the crew noted a strange "haze" all around them on the horizon.
