On October 26, 2022, pillars of mysterious lights were observed over the southern island of Jeju in South Korea.

A strange observation was first reported by a certain Camila Lastrilla. The woman shared a recording from her phone, which captures a scene that is difficult to explain, except with special effects.

These light bands, commonly known as lampposts, have been observed in many different parts of the world and in different forms.

A very similar phenomenon was recorded in the South Korean city of Busan in 2017. Excited people have witnessed strange events over the past three nights. At that time, this was explained by the reflection of street lamps and car headlights, arising on the occasion of severe frosts. These rays are considered to be just an optical illusion caused by ice crystals in the Earth's atmosphere.

Original news

26 października 2022 roku nad południową wyspą Jeju w Korei Południowej zaobserwowano kolumny tajemniczych świateł.

O dziwacznej obserwacji, jako pierwsza doniosła niejaka Camila Lastrilla. Kobieta udostępniła nagranie z telefonu, które przedstawia scenę którą trudno wyjaśnić inaczej niż za pomocą efektów specjalnych.

Te smugi światła, popularnie nazywane słupami świetlnymi, były obserwowane w wielu różnych częściach świata i pod różnymi postaciami. Mówi się, że te promienie są jedynie iluzją optyczną, wywoływaną przez kryształki lodu w atmosferze Ziemi.

Bardzo podobne zjawisko zarejestrowano południowokoreańskim mieście Pusan w 2017 roku. Podekscytowani ludzie przez ostatnie trzy noce byli świadkami dziwnych zdarzeń. Wówczas tłumaczono to odbiciem światła latarni ulicznych i reflektorów aut, występującym przy okazji silnych mrozów

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Ice needles

Solid precipitation in the form of fine ice crystals floating in the air, resulting in cold weather (air temperature below -10...-15°). Day sparkle in the light of the sun, at night in the moonlight or by the light of lanterns. Often ice needles form at night beautiful glowing "pillars", coming from the lanterns up in the sky.
Occur most often during clear or cloudy the sky, sometimes fall from cirrostratus or Cirrus clouds.

Light (solar) pole

One of the most frequent types of halo, a visual phenomenon, an optical effect which is a vertical band of light stretching from the sun during sunset or sunrise.

Events

Rocket launches (from space.skyrocket.de)

Investigation

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

As in the case of 2017, it looks like ordinary ice needles or light pillars, i.e. the reflection of bright light sources in the ice crystals of the atmosphere.
