Photographer Timothy Joseph Elzinga was awakened by his two-year-old son at 1:30 a.m. to a spectacular light display in the sky. Initially mistaking the illuminations for the Northern Lights due to his location in Canada, Elzinga soon realised that he was witnessing the phenomenon known as "light pillars"; an atmospheric spectacle caused by the interaction of light with ice crystals. When the temperature drops, these horizontal crystals act as conduits for light, catapulting it skyward. Elzinga quickly captured the event, producing a stunning collection of photographs.
