Did You See The Pillars Of Light In Buhl, Idaho This Morning?
Did you see the pillars of light in the sky in Buhl, Idaho this morning? Thanks to KEZJ listener, Andrea Woll, we all can now. She was kind enough to share this pic of what appears to be pillars of colored light extending into the sky.
I had to Google this one to figure out what light pillars actually are. Fortunately, smart people - or at least way smarter than me - at EarthSky.org had the explanation.
Sun pillars, or light pillars, are shafts of light extending from the sun or other bright light source. They’re caused by ice crystals drifting in Earth’s air.
So, there you go. When in doubt, blame it on the ice crystals. With the temps we've had lately, we have plenty of ice crystals to go around.
Thanks again to Andrea Woll for sharing! If you have pics to share, please feel free to include them in the comments below.
Thanks also to listener, Shirley Anderson, who also grabbed some great pics of the light pillars near her!
