We had a beautiful display of light pillars this evening. It was about -21C and virtually clear out when these crystals formed. They only lasted maybe 45 minutes or so and I managed to get an image with the crescent moon along with both Jupiter(the brightest “star”) and Venus(down from Jupiter). The two planets and our moon were best viewed on December 1st as they were then closest together. Unfortunately that night Red Deer was clouded over.
