Sun Pillar

Sunlight reflecting of the underside of falling ice crystals can give a weak column of light above the sun. The strength will depends on how well aligned the crystals are, usually there is enough variation that no pillar is visible.

Even a low sun can be dangerously bright !   Shield the sun and protect your eyes from the glare.
