For the first time in our lives last week, Don and I saw a natural phenomenon called a Sun pillar. 

To me, the Sun shone like a giant spotlight into the sky. 

In reality, Sun pillars are vertical streaks of light that appear above and below a low Sun as it shines through clouds that contain ice crystals. The pillars are caused by sunlight reflecting off the surface of falling ice crystals.

Breathtaking.
