I stumbled upon the following image which is from last year in Brazil. Apparently the whole sky turned red and people heard trumpets. What do you guys think about this? Is there some explanation?

Welcome to SFN.

Having Googled around some, I find no evidence that anyone heard trumpets who wasn't close to a brass band.

As for the sky turning red, the video you linked to was taken with a camera with poor color control. You don't think his neighbor's lights were really that color of yellow-orange, do you?

The real problem is the profusion of "I can't think of an explanation for this, therefore God must have done it" arguments. A different YouTuber came up with and dismissed a couple of whacky conspiracy theories before deciding God did it, never once considering natural explanations. Another problem: when he said, "I have never seen a sky this color," to him it meant, "there has never been a sky this color." There is no better demonstration of the arrogance of ignorance.
