Strange columns of light cannot be explained by the experts. Some say the phenomenon is caused simply by ice crystals and unusually low evening temperatures.
Others are not so sure.

So, proceeding onward with the 'workings of my own particular mind,' I feel that whatever 'sun changes' are currently underway, and it should be very obvious by now to anybody able to look at recent and current events that some kind of sun change is definately underway, these changes are probably affecting the 'nature' of 'local space'
My own 'laymans' conclusion, admittedly based on little more than a gut-feeling, is that both these phenomena are due simply to a brightening sun - that is to say a sun putting out more and more power in the visible spectrum ( and, of course by extension, probably more power in other spectra as well, like x-ray for instance )
