A Ray of Hope

On the way to work this morning I saw an unusual phenomenon moments before sunrise. A sun pillar is caused by light reflecting off of ice crystals when the light source is low such as sunrise or sunset. It was only about 5 degrees this morning, so it was certainly cold enough for ice in the atmosphere.
