heavenly signs
On March 18, 2011, five short light pillars were spotted over the island country of Bahrain.

According to Arabian web sites, the "heavenly signs" appeared during the evening's sermon and disappeared as soon as the prayers ended.

We suspect that the orange lights were the reflected images of combustion flames at the many oil refineries on the island.
