A solar column appeared over the Krasnoyarsk Territory

Residents of the Krasnoyarsk Territory were lucky enough to observe a beautiful atmospheric phenomenon at sunset today — a light (or solar) column.

This is a visual atmospheric phenomenon, an optical effect, which is a vertical strip of light stretching from the sun during its sunset or sunrise.

The physics of the phenomenon is quite simple and is associated with the presence in the atmosphere of hexagonal flat or columnar ice crystals with almost horizontal parallel flat surfaces in which sunlight is refracted and reflected.

Light pillars are often also formed around the moon, city lights and other bright light sources.
