Ice Pillar

Me and Jake looked into the sky one VERY cold night and this is what we seen. Neither of us had any clue as to what they were, but both agreed they were very interesting. We noticed that the lights seemed like they were shooting up from all the area lights, well we were right. I saw the following video on the local news the next day that told me exactly what it was something I had never even heard of let alone seen, Ice Pillar.

Ice Pillar are a type of optical phenomenon from the reflection of the lights by ice crystals that are present in the Earth’s Atmosphere. You can read more about them on Wikipedia if you would like to, they really are a beautiful and amazing phenomenon!! I guess just another thing that comes with having one of the worst winters ever recorded!!
