Sorry for the snapshot, but we were in the ferry line and cars were loading when this decided to appear above us; it's one of the most stunning things I've witnessed to date. No color balance or anything done, this is what it and the atmosphere around us looked like at the time...

The inner "dome" itself was arcing 300ft+ into the sky...just astonishing. Thanks for looking in.

Thanks for looking in! I can say that it is likely a once in a lifetime encounter to one show up like that.
