Further Description of Sighting: Traveling between Luary and New Market, VA, approximately 15 minutes before arriving in New Market I saw a large column, probe, of light extending from the sky to the ground.
One minute before I photographed an unusual orange colored sky. The light did not look like any sun rays or beams I have every seen. One minute after the sky was normal (I have these 3 photographs in sequence).
It may be something to do with the atmosphere. I did see another post from someone who saw an extended probe of white light from a craft. Please post here as to whether or not it appears to be the same thing you saw.
