SUSPENDED LIGHT PILLARS Taken by Vincent Brady on October 16, 2018 @ Paradise, Michigan, USA
Suspended Light Pillars Over Whitefish Bay.
I was looking for auroras but was pleasantly surprised to see light pillars early Tuesday morning, October 16th. This is a shot north of Paradise, MI looking east over Whitefish Bay. The red lights are around the Canadian island Ile Parisienne and wind turbines. Light pillars are caused by ice crystals in the atmosphere reflecting and refracting light from artificial light sources.
