What literary device is this? ?

“It was a soft night, the sky streaked in blood” what type of device is this? I’m confused as to if it is a metaphor?

    It's personification. The sky which is inanimate is being considered to being either a human being or an animal

    You should ask your self what a metaphor is - then if the sky is literally 'streaked in blood' (unlikely) and take it from there.
