    no, not northern lights; these are called light pillars. in very cold weather, ice crystals are in the air and reflect light back at us from natural or even man-made light.

    Light Pillar The reflection of light by ice crystals with almost perfect horizontal planar surfaces creates a powerful beam that is reminiscent of sci-fi movies. The light source may be the sun, moon or artificial light and an interesting characteristic is that the pillar will take on the color of this source.

    "Light pillars  scrape the night sky over Victor, Idaho, on January 26 (2009). Typically seen in polar regions, the vertical columns of light have been appearing along with frigid temperatures at lower latitudes this winter. Light pillars appear when artificial light (shown in diagram above) or natural light bounces off the facets of flat ice crystals wafting relatively close to the ground." Note the phenomenon occurs over furthest northern latitudes but lately they are seen as far south as Idaho. This next set did occur in Canada near Toronto but the pillars did not act as they usually do: "Did you see something strange Friday night ? (January 13, 2010). A British Columbia UFO chronicler and paranormal expert is reporting eyewitness accounts of strange vertical lights in the sky over Dundas and Waterdown. The witness thought they could be "light pillars," a visual atmospheric phenomenon created by the reflection of light from ice crystals from a light source such as the sun or moon, but they are not usually seen from several viewpoints."

Mexico's Cave of Crystals contains some of the world's largest known natural crystals—translucent beams of gypsum as long as 36 feet (11 meters). A new study says the gems reached their vast sizes thanks to a peculiar combination of consistent volcanic heat and a rich watery mixture.
