could you post a pic from the same angle in the daytime? I cannot imagine a shadow that can be seen in the dark.
The black line in the sky that is associated with contrails is just an illusion with the sun and contrail in the perfect place to create a shadow, but
you only see that on sunny days.
I am thinking your picture is a tower in the dark.
I believe it is a shadow. I have seen similar things in person and they end up being a bright light on the ground beaming on a flag at the top of a
flagpole. The area looks quite hazy which would add to the ambient light and make it easier to create a shadow.
My first observation is that there is a light source that is either bouncing off the beam or shining through it because your "black beam" goes
straight up but also "runs though" the light source seemingly without affecting it. From the picture, it appears that the light (one of two lights in
the vicinity) is behind the beam but I think it is odd that the beam isn't blocking or distorting it at all.
Not an expert, just an observation that I think may add to the mystery.

It looks all the world to be a shadow, there is a bright source of light at ground level that can be seen, and something is blocking the light more or
less in the centre. I suppose you could also say, rather than shadow, an area where the light is blocked. Much the same thing really.
No, imagine a dome. The dome is filled with fog. A single light illuminates the whole dome because of the fog. If something is placed over the
light the dome will still be lit but a black beam will be cut through it.
One sees the "beam" clearly with the naked eye. I struggle at times to really get a clear photo via the camera. Even though the beam is visible on the
photos it is nothing as clear as one sees it with the naked eye. I also take into account that i zoom in on it and so i pick up blurry pics.
kdog, i can agree with that. But, this beam is high. It goes up and up. On my original thread i have photos where it seems to touch the clouds. I have
said that in my original thread that one could see lower clouds passing over it. That's how high this beam is.
Sorry, I'm not understanding and having trouble imagining your dome scenario. Is there some other way you can explain how something that is supposed
be a shadow caused by a blokcage of light will allow a light source from behind it to shine through?
One poster alluded to a flag pole. Let's say it is some sort of pole blocking the light. How is the light source behind it (which is also present in
all nighttime photos the OP has posted) shining through a solid object?
Not arguing, just having trouble understanding your dome analogy
The thing is that where the source seems to come from is koppies/hiils/offroad.
It is a koppie area. Offroad, or an easier to do trail-hike in the day. Another thing: it is that it is a protected area, not cos of UFO's, but
because it is a nature reserve. So, one can only go that far in the day. At night, it's a no no, unless you know the owners of the lands.
