Mysterious shafts of light in the sky Finnish

Specialist Finnish Meteorological Institute believes that this phenomenon is due to fly into the air tiny ice crystals, which reflect the light of street lamps. These crystals are usually lamellar form, floating in the horizontal plane and in combination with artificial lighting to create amazing lighting columns. Shafts of light are of the same nature as the more familiar we halo effect — is when the lights appear in the sky circles or arcs.
