Either real or photoshopped. The bar of light is visible being reflected from the VW in front and the hood of the photo car.

It looks like a perfectly shaped light the cars reflecting the light can be seen.

But how can a light be so perfectly shaped?
There is loads of people anyone else catched this light or was it only this guy somehow.

If that's the case, I'm not sure why it's being reflected on cars, and going behind the clouds instead of in front.

Judging by the sun's position, It looks like a sun ray shining through a very small opening in the clouds. It doesn't appear fake as the "ray" can be seen in the reflection on both cars.


Yes it can be seen in reflections, in fact you can also see what appears to a reflection of a branch of lightning on the bonnet at the foot of the pillar, that corresponds to what you can see looking directly at the foot of the pillar. The only thing about the sun though is that it seems to be behind the camera, it too is being reflected by the VW badge.

I thought this too, though I didn't have an explanation for it. The car hood is sloped, so any reflection would be somewhat distorted in relation to the source object. Pretty obviously not real to anyone who has ever seen a curved reflective surface.
The explanation is pretty cool though. You might also notice that the cars ahead of the one with the "beam" being reflected on the hood are only reflecting the lightning bolt, not the "beam." So, rolling shutter effect + photo shop?
