Recently, a huge "pillar of light" appeared above the shopping mall near Hunhe in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. The bright white layers looked like "ladders", attracting many passersby to stop and take pictures.

Meteorological experts from the Shenyang Meteorological Bureau said that this is a real celestial phenomenon. Because of the thin clouds and large water vapor, this peculiar landscape is formed.
