Light pillars are pretty.
Are these raw snaps, or do you edit them before posting? Because, dang.
Looks like God’s flicking his Bic…
Yes, they are. You might have sundogs early tomorrow morning.
Then I will be asleep for them.
I saw a light pillar going to work the other day. Unfortunately there were a lot buildings and stuff in the way.
Can’t help thinking of a certain iconic star wars poster. . .
ghostwhitehorse @6: The brothers Hildebrandt, yes?
htom @3, John @4: Sleeping in seems a good deterrent against possible low-altitude sundogs. If they are truly picturesque, I’m sure Daisy will have posted them to John’s fl*ckr acc’t within the hour of [their] first sighting.
Once again the planetary defenses fired at the incoming kinetic weapons. An actinic flash followed by a loud crack as the air tried to keep up with the expanding atmosphere, heated by the massive ray of energy. And again! They keep firing as the colossal rocky masses race to impact the earth. So hard to sleep…
Very, very nice!
