Sun Pilar

When it's cold, ice crystals (6 sided but not like snow flakes) fall from the even colder heights and line up a bit because of wind resistance (that is, they fall flat) and the result of the lined up refraction is a column of light. Like this beautiful one in North Carolina recently.
Credit for the photo is to Terry Holdsclaw. Very nice.
