This light is emanating from the south west horizon. The sun has just set to the west and there is no beam of light connected to the source from the west (right side of picture). The clouds steaming in the foreground of the light are also unusual.
Every now and then I see strange things in the sky. A couple of times in Hawaii I saw a bright hole open up in the night sky. As the hole grew larger it revealed a daylight sky on the other side. The hole then sucked up into itself and disappeared returning to a night sky. I learned many years later that these apparitions were nuclear explosion tests that were being conducted somewhere between the thermosphere and troposphere.
Pilots, nurses and doctors seem to have the same type of cognitive bias. They are too close to the subject matter yet too far from the expertise required to solve the anomaly. My friends that have taken on these professions are intimate examples of this. My pilot friend believes in all sorts of woo. My nurse friend was very spiritual and took her own life. And my doctor friend was a total sexual deviate and just plain stupid. We are no longer in communication.
The point I am making is, some people that may seem like they qualify to have knowledge on a particular field may very well be the LAST person to actually know what is going on. As we see with incredibly gifted people. They are almost always endowed with a fatal flaw. We humans seem to achieve more symbiotically by assigning specific tasks to individuals without them being informed of the whole complexity. We depend on this efficiency but suffer for it.
I wrote an article on living a “Dolly Zoomed Life” and I think this speaks volumes as to how to elevate the suffering from near and far sighted perspective. Wing Chun is Dynamic Balance of Structure.
