Rare light pillars show up over Donogal in Ireland

Beautiful display of light pillars in the sky of Donegal in northwestern Ireland.

A light pillar is an atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above and/or below a light source. The effect is created by the reflection of light from numerous tiny ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere or clouds.

The clip was filmed on March 11, 2018.
