At 08.45LT this morning i was walking to get a bus when i spotted a beautiful golden sun pillar low in the eastern sky 5* tall with sharp edges. It was a stunning sight with a golden murky sun just above the horizon. The lower sky was laced with cirrus type clouds. I took several images and movie footage with my mobile phone however i do not have the cable to transfer them to the computer. When i woke up i also seen mighty Venus in the bright blue twilight. The suns disk was visible for hours today in the fog above Magherafelt. Keep an eye out today for further atmospheric displays!
