Sun Pillar Sequence

Over 25 minutes this sunpillar drifted slowly to the right, following the sun. The pillar faded out when the sun was almost 4 degrees below the horizon.

This delicate sunset showed a faint pillar on the horizon as the sun set.

The sun pillar moves to the right quite noticeably in the 11 minutes between these frames...

as a pair of contrails drift towards it.
