Has this been looked at anywhere here? Columns of mysterious light appeared in Latvia last month?

These stunning images show mysterious columns of light streaming into the sky above the town of Sigulda in Latvia at the end of last month.
Taken by designer Aigar Truhins with a standard digital camera, the photographs have prompted excited online discussions among amateur astronomists all over the internet.
'My son exclaimed, 'The aliens are coming!'' Truhins was quoted as saying.

There are more photos at the source. Too weird. I can't say I've ever seen anything like this. Obviously it has something to do with the street lights below, but why the outward flare towards the top?

Light disperses like that in fog, I've had that effect in pics too. Very beautiful!

Yes, indeed, like the crystallized mist effect. The mist only reaches a certain elevation above your head and respectively above those street lights. When it reaches it's dissipation point the light seems to spread.

Still, I can't think of much that can take from it's beauty. Truly a spectacle to be relished like the rings around the moon, rainbows, aurora, lightning from above the ionosphere and the like.

Thanks for the pics...I see a new Wallpaper in my repertoire
