Northern US Sky Experiences Dazzling Light Pillars

Northern US Sky Experiences Dazzling Light Pillars

Like an event straight out of a current-day science-fiction movie, the dazzling columns of light were recently spotted across the area of the northern United States.

If there is no wind and the atmospheric conditions are calm, the particles will stack one on another, drifting through the atmosphere.

Then, much like a mirror, the collection of ice surfaces will reflect the light of a nearby source—such as a street light, moonlight, or even sunlight.

According to the NWS, although there is no known specific temperature that determines the light pillars formation, the temperature at ground level is typically registered at 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

In Oregon, Democrats seek to end GOP boycotts of Legislature


SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Walkouts by Republicans in Oregon's Legislature have become so frequent, with GOP lawmakers torpedoing progressive legislation, that Democrats want to sanction boycotters with $500 daily fines and even disqualify them from holding office.

The issue has become acrimonious, with Democrats saying the boycotts harm the democratic functioning of the state. Oregon is particularly vulnerable to boycotts because, while 46 of the other statehouses in America require only a simple majority for a quorum, the northwestern state requires two-thirds of lawmakers to be present.

Democrats have most of the seats in the Oregon Legislature, but lack the two-thirds majority to conduct business if Republicans stay away.

This is the third straight year in which Republicans have used walkouts. They have also sometimes insisted that bills be read in full, causing bills to stack up after they leave committees, and delaying floor votes on them.
