I work near Denver, Co. I was out back having a smoke around 2:30am. When I looked around, every light in the area looked like a search light pointing straight up.
It was about 3 degrees F outside at the time. It had been snowing all day. At the time there was a very, very fine snow still coming down even thought there were no clouds overhead.
I’ve lived my whole live (35yrs) in places where it gets cold/snows in the winter and I’ve NEVER seen anything like that. It looked so cool I dragged the guy I work with outside to check it out. He’d never seen anything like it either.
So, my question is: what caused this? If it was just the fine snowfall, how come I’ve never seen it before?
