Sun Pillar Sighting

This evening while sitting outside enjoying a banana split at a local ice cream shop, I began looking for sun dogs as the sun was setting. I didn't see any, but on the way home I did get a real surprise when I spotted a sun pillar. For more information check the Atmospheric Optics site.


  1. that must have been an impressive sight!

  2. Interesting web site. Gonna go look at what a sun dog is now.

  3. The cool thing about both sun pillars that I've seen is that the sun has already sunk behind a hill and the only thing visible is the beautiful shaft of light streaming straight up into the sky.
