This was a bonus for Comet McNaught. The weather was too dirty and foggy in Ankara to see the comet that evening. So I went to the top of a hill about 1800 meters high near Ankara to take the photos of comet. While I was watching the sun set, this scene came into view. I have never seen such a bright sunpillar before.
