Pink Pillar Over Nashua, New Hampshire
June 16, 2008
The photo above showing a lovely pink pillar over Nashua, New Hampshire was captured on January 20, 2008. I estimate that this Sun pillar extended approximately 5 to 7 degrees above the western horizon. On occasion, these narrow columns of reflected sunlight can stretch more than 10 degrees from the horizon. Since pillars are reflection phenomenon, their color, is in essence, mimics that of sunlight.
