Light Pillars

No, sadly, those aren’t aliens. Instead, the unusual lights over the Whitefish Bay in Lake Superior, were light pillars, which were caused by falling ice crystals.

Photographer Vincent Brady took the amazing photo. He wrote:

I was looking for auroras but was pleasantly surprised to see light pillars early Tuesday morning, October 16th. This is a shot north of Paradise, MI looking east over Whitefish Bay. The red lights are around the Canadian island Ile Parisienne and wind turbines.
