A sun pillar is a halo phenomenon of a vertical shaft of light extending upward or downward from the sun. They are typically observed during sunrise or sunset, when sunlight reflects off the surfaces of ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds (e.g.cirrostratus clouds).

The hexagonal plate-like ice crystals fall with a horizontal orientation, gently rocking from side to side as they fall. So when the sun is low on the horizon, an area of brightness appears in the sky above (or below) the sun as sunlight is reflected off the surfaces of these tipped ice crystals.

Sun pillars are seen best within a few minutes of sunrise or sunset. Initially they take the same coulour and width as the sun, but gradually change their colour to red-orange.

On rare occasions, sunset pillars may occur with part of the parhelic cycle to give the appearance of a cross centered on the Sun.

All these pictures of this intense sunset pillar over the island of Tenerife were taken by Roberto Porto.
