Thanks Damian for ringing Rhys and I just now to let us know there is a sun pillar. Following photos taken outside front of our looking West towards setting sun.
A sun pillar is a vertical shaft of light extending upward or downward from the sun. Typically seen during sunrise or sunset, sun pillars form when sunlight reflects off the surfaces of falling ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds (like cirrostratus clouds).
22:10. It got even better!
