Pillars of light in Nebraska, the beautiful natural setting

Incredible pillars of light with an impalpable brightness animate the skies of Nebraska, a unique spectacle for those who can view it.

To immortalize thenatural event it was Bill Taylor who photographed the phenomenon in North Platte in Nebraska while walking around the area. The meteorologist was struck by the spontaneous scenography created by the ice particles, engaged in dancing and floating in the sky forming these singular columns. Everything is given by the meeting between the light and the ice particles, with the latter affected by the former enough to reflect it to obtain this luminous column shape.

However, the situation does not seem entirely new because i pillars of light seen in Nebraska have also occurred in other areas of the USA, as recently happened in Michigan as well. An effect very similar to that of the much better known northern Lights, with the light hitting the floating particles that create movement. A natural effect given by the light present, such as that of the moon, street lamps or the sun capable of intercepting the ice crystals engaged in floating. Their slow fall into the air reflects the light source creating the magical effect.

A scenic optical illusion in Nebraska

As Taylor himself claims, crystals reflect both the light present in the environment and that coming from theatmosphere, favoring the creation of an impalpable light column. The crystals that move suspended in the air are naturally aligned and behave like a mirror. A optic effect really intriguing, favored by the absence of wind and the low temperatures, which moved below zero.

A sort of static that actually creates movement and the more the crystals develop upwards, the longer the pillar. The event was also facilitated byarctic air which is moving from North America and which will push down the mercury column. A favorable weather condition for the pillars to form in a large part of the USA, particularly in the states where the cold is more pungent and the air drier. An unparalleled show for those who can admire it.
