Sun Pillar


Solar Pillar

Interesting dawn this morning.  We had a Solar Pillar!  This photo is just from the internet.  I don’t have a good camera  phone and in any case you can’t get a good photo through the scummy window of a moving train.

It’s a pretty impressive phenomenon though.  Well worth the 52 year wait to see my first one, or at least to recognise one.

You can imagine how primitive people might take such a dawn as a sign from God and set off in pursuit of it.  Was this the pillar of fire that Moses followed into Sinai?  Probably not, since it was a pillar of cloud by day, so it was, in all likelihood a volcanic eruption.
