    Hey guys,

    Youtube

    Just found this video on one of the tin foil hat brigade websites that I look over from time to time. Anybody seen anything similar over there? Anybody got any idea what this is? Swamp gas? :D :?

    They're light pillars. Usually caused by the sun/moon low on the horizon with cloud layer above (ice crystals mainly). Can also form above above bright light sources on the ground such as in this video.
     
  7. Ber-looody typical. Every time we come up with a wizzo new weapon or technique to defeat terrur, some eejit gives the game away by gobbing off on some website.

    There were squirrels as well.
