Mars meets Moon

Last night planet Mars was pretty close to the Moon. Here you can see Mars just above one of the churches in Östersund. The clouds and a mist laying over the lake of Storsjön reflected the light from the Moon very nicely. The light pillar in front of the Moon is due to ice crystals in the air being lit up by the Moon. The effect is commonly known as Moon pillar.
