Are Space Aliens Transporting Through Light Streams?


There is an amazing light phenomena even more fantastic than the legendary Aurora Borealis. This particular play of light in Earth’s atmosphere is reminiscent of the special effects used by Star Trek producers to “beam” people willy-nilly to their destination of choice. For night owls and insomniacs in the farthest reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, they got to bear witness to an event that surely had some UFOlogists wondering if a mass alien abduction event was taking place.

What created these prismatic columns of light on the early morning horizon? Were space aliens zapping unsuspecting sleepers to heavenly laboratories for an exploratory prod and a poke then returning them to their beds unaware of what had happened? Sorry to crush any enthusiasm for fantastic explanations. The truth is that these were simply pillars of light, actually quite ordinary once you understand the science, despite their very extraordinary appearance.

When temperatures plunge in lower latitudes of Earth’s polar regions, there is enough moisture in the air for ice crystals to form. As light reflects off of these crystals, prismatic columns in every hue of the rainbow, blue, orange, red and white, can be seen vividly against the grayish backdrop of an arctic or sub-arctic sky. The most recent event was documented by amateur and professional photographers and videographers in Canada. The phenomena lasted for hours on January 6, allowing plenty of time for those lucky (or unfortunate, depending on how you view insomnia) enough to be awake at nearly 2am.
