It's a cool looking photo but the thing that strikes me is, how was the photographer so quick at taking the photo?
It seems to me that the options are -
1. He just happened to take a photo of the scenery and was very lucky with the timing.
2. He has lightning quick reactions and the camera was already switched on.
3. He has manipulated the image.
4. He knew it was going to happen and had the camera ready.
5. The event lasted for long enough to enable him to switch the camera on and take the single photo.
Whichever it is, I doubt if the photo is of light pillars unless they make a really loud noise or the photographer is making up the bit about the noise.

After reading through every post in this thread, I have to agree with one comment more so than the others.
If it is not fake, it in my opinion, looks rather similar to an MLRS launch, and the hole in the cloud may be a sonic boom, thus opening it up. Some times the simplest answer....might be the right one. Howver in this case with out more info it is inconclusive.
Cool image none the less.

I'd send a email with it to the local news station, asking what they think. I'd suggest the Meteorologist, looks natural to me.edit on 8-12-2012 by Chargeit because: (no reason given)
