DescriptionAs Comet mcnaught was just becoming a broad daylight naked-eye spectacle, we in the midwest got slammed with a winter storm - most of the precip that fell was in the form of ice pellets.
In this image, you can see the pillars of light created when the lights from store parking lots eflect off the falling ice crystals. (See Atmospheric Optics)
