"...But the light pillars Mike Hollingshead saw on Jan. 26th near a corn mill in Blair, Nebraska, were decidely uncommon. "They had V-shaped tops," he explains, "and some of the Vs were nested." Here is what he saw..."

I saw this image on SpaceWeather.com and was floored.

That is one wild phenomenon! "Beam me up, Scotty!"

Ah no, it's light reflecting off ice crystals.

Notice how the pillars form above a light source...








Columns of light apparently beaming directly upwards from unshielded (and wastefully polluting) lights are sometimes visible during very cold weather. Plate shaped ice crystals, normally only present in high clouds, float in the air close to the ground and their horizontal facets reflect light back downwards.

The pillars are not physically over the lights or anywhere else in space for that matter ~ like all halos they are purely the collected light beams from all the millions of crystals which just happen to be reflecting light towards your eyes or camera.

Cool stuff!



"These light pillars are not just rare, they are exceptional!" declares atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley. "Ordinary pillars are produced by plate-shaped ice crystals roughly half way between you and the light source. These are different. Their rarely seen flared tops show that they were made by column-shaped crystals drifting slowly downwards and aligned horizontal by air resistance."

That's so much better than street lights! Looks so futuristic.
Really beautiful, thanks for the post.

I knew it was a natural occurence.....

I still think of "Scotty" when I look at the light pillars......having an imagination is fun


Enjoy!

Indeed. So many people seem to forget that around here.

On that note, I'm thinking more along the lines of Asgard Beaming Technology.
Nature is very amazing, isn't it?

Looks like something that came out of a Daft Punk MTV.
