Visibility II / V
The lights of Jyväskylä's Rautpohja Moventas factory seem to have formed the traditional artificial light pillar observation on my business trip this January. Unfortunately, again only cell phone pictures.
The air was full of tiny ice char and already on the corner of the university’s main building I noticed a pillar that seemed to spread fan-like from its top. At the malls, I got the first slightly better pictures.
When the pillars turned to Hippos, Moventas showed several colors in addition to the strongest pair of light. Weak pillars can also be seen above Hippos lamps.
The clouds and ice mist moved quickly. From Jyrsijänkatu I was able to shoot a series showing the changes. The best pieces of the pillars growing from the bottom up and opening up into fans, though, were only stored on my retinas.
There is a name for that fan-shaped shape, but I don't remember it here now.
