Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.

Short circuit

Suddenly you hear a loud Bang and bright Spica. After that may turn off the light in the apartment, as well as to spread the fire.

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Proceeding from "Local residents said that at that moment they noticed a jump in electricity, and in some houses transformers were turned off." it's a short circuit. This flash was reflected from a low layer of clouds. It is worth waiting for an official statement from the utilities to confirm.

In the news from the local website reported:

The chief engineer assured – there is nothing supernatural in the phenomenon.

"An ordinary short circuit may have occurred on the overhead line. Yesterday it was raining, a strong gusty wind was blowing, with this strong gusty wind, the wires are swinging. One of the wires could clash either with the body, the body of the support, or between the wires. And there could be a certain outbreak. And due to the fact that there was dense atmospheric cloud cover during the rain yesterday, the luminous flux could dissipate into a large space by reflection from clouds," explained Radik Panchu, chief engineer of the NPP.


The most likely explanation. The version, confirmed by the investigation
