Tonight I filmed a very unusual sunset mirage, but what is the vertical pillar of light below the sun? To understand what it is you have to watch the video The first pillar appears at 0:20 into the video. Understand now what it is? If no, heres your answer: it is a whales spout.
Of course the sunset was unusual not because of whales, but because of a very complex, multiple inversions. While the lowest sun was setting, producing some green flashes, the upper suns were not in a hurry to set and kept disappearing and reappearing.
The picture is a frame from the video.

Congratulations, what a great video!
The sunset in itself is absolutely amazing but the whales spouts adds a most unusual lower sunpillar!
