Solar pillar is an optical phenomenon in the form of straight beam of light going up from sun at horizon or even sun below horizon, created by the reflection of light from tiny ice crystals that are suspended in the atmosphere or that comprise high-altitude clouds.
I was travelling on the highway when my eyes suddenly caught a beam of light going straight up the sky so made a stop to capture this beautiful sight.
