Resident of North Bay, Canada, Timothy Joseph Elzinga recently sighted light pillars in the night sky. According to CBC News:

“Light pillars appear when either natural or artificial light bounces off ice crystals floating close to the ground. In this case, the air was so cold that ice crystals were forming in the air, reflecting the city’s street and business lights.”
