I had noticed a dramatic and uncommon sun pillar
, and realized it was in the path of departures from LaGuardia Airport
. The sun pillar only lasts a few minutes, so some luck was involved. You can see how this image connects to LGA if you look for it within “Star Trails with LGA Flight Paths
.” For another example, see “Caught Between the Moon and New York City
.” Several people have told me this photo reminds them of a UFO
beaming up a captured specimen.
