Interesting Street Light Phenomena

Taken 6:30am 1/22/2019 in Glens Falls, New York. Temperature was approx negative 20. Strange light direction from street lights.

I was going to blame this on the CCD imager , but how do you explain the lines that start behind the building?  Ed.

  1. This is fairly common phenomenon here in Fairbanks AK, we call it ice fog. Air is cold enough to precipitate out ice crystals and the light reflects it high in the air. My local commute into town is from 600 feet above elevation in town and the lights from town all have this effect 2 to 300 feet above the actual light. Probably higher but the light dissipates.
