This evening I went up to the roof because evenings have been nice and cool recently. My jaw dropped when I saw the lights coming from the Taiwan Straight:
This shot is facing west and except for a few kilometers of land in front of me, there is nothing there except the Taiwan Straight and eventually, China.
This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen strange light beams like this in Taiwan.
I took the above 2 shots in June, 2004, in Taoyuan. I shot them out my window and I had removed the window glass to get an open view of the mountains. In this case, I’m facing West towards the center of Taiwan.
This is the second shot from this evening. Notice the very well developed beams to the left. Or should I say “shadows?” These went on for a considerable distance up into the sky.
Not sure what causes these beams (especially the ones from the East) but they sure look interesting!
