“Pillars of light” appeared again in the province of Sulu this year, and were captured in several photos shared by netizens.
According to a certain Amarkhan Jidara, who shared several photos of the spectacular dance of lights in the night sky, the latest celestial show they witnessed was last Sunday, June 30, 2019 at 7 p.m.
Jidara said residents were awestruck at the sight of lights in the sky.
Sulu folks claim they have been seeing the lights for quite sometime already, appearing once or twice a year.
Local Tausugs call the lights “Lansuk-Lansuk” or candles.
But Tausugs have opposing beliefs about the appearance of the lights. Some think it brings bad luck or tragedy, while others look at it as a sign of good luck.
Last Sunday’s sky show lasted for 20 to 30 minutes, Jidara said. —LBG, GMA News
