Lots going on the skies this week. First we had the robot walking on clouds and then the bizarre light pillars that projected a map of the city in the night sky. Now this week we have two separate sky illusion events that both occurred on the same day but in two different locations – and both had religious connotations.
Mechaele Loraff posted a beautiful yellow, glowing cross in the sky above Buchanan, Michigan on January 13 (see this article for an explanation of sun pillars and their cause). The same day, Amy Langley snapped a photo of a winged angel in the skies above the island of Kauai, Hawaii. In Langley’s case however, she believes the illusion is the result of camera lens flare and not a sun pillar.
Keep your eyes to the skies folks – it’s shaping up to be a busy year!
