Bright Spheres With Strange Beams of Light Emanating in the Clouds over Missouri
A hunter, his friend and another guy were making their way back to the boat ramp after a day of deer hunting along the Missouri River; the sun had set approximately 15 minutes earlier, when they noticed a strange group of lights above the clouds and beams of light reflecting off the river.
Although the event only lasted seconds and was gone, his friend managed to take a picture of the phenomenon.
Quality inspector: “This may be just a very cool sun dog-type reflection, but I was having a hard time explaining the chevron shaped group of lights above the cloud, and the ‘way too evenly spaced’ beams of light coming off what appears to be the sun shining down from the cloud.”
“Looking at the bottom of the clouds in the picture you can tell that the sun is reflecting off the bottom of the cloud and the beams are apparently reflecting off the river.”
