A spectacular sun column is seen as the sun rises at Saltburn-by-the-Sea in North Yorkshire.
A column or light pillar is an atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above a light source. The effect is created by the reflection of light from numerous tiny ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere or clouds.
