A northern Ontario man was surprised to wake up in the middle of the night to see beams of brightly coloured lights shooting up into the sky.
“We can blame the two-year-old. He started crying at 1:30 a.m., so I got up and soothed him … and out the window I had the perfect view of these dancing lights in the sky,” said Timothy Joseph Elzinga.
“I had to investigate. I got some pants on and ran outside and took some photos.”
According to National Geographic, Elzinga captured a weather phenomenon called light pillars.
