I awakened to this incredible sky one morning while camping at Kidney Pond in Baxter State Park. Not only did I get the red sky but also a sun pillar! Sun pillars are vertical shafts of light extending upward or downward from the sun, typically seen during sunrise or sunset. Sun pillars form when sunlight reflects off falling ice crystals typically associated with thin, high layer clouds, like cirrostratus clouds. In the distance is The Greatest Mountain, Mt. Katahdin.
