Light Pillars with Norhern Lights above them

Northern lights with Northern "Light pillars" ..Sometimes when people come here, they are mistaken light pillars for Aurora, but yesterday we had both in the same time. You know is cold when moister in the air freeze and falling down.. "Light pillars" are reflection of light from ice crystals.. "Very still air, cooling with moisture in it, will if freezing create platelets of ice and fall like small dinner plates reflecting the street light, mercury vapor or sodium, below them."
