(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It was a spectacle in the skies Tuesday night as light pillars form across West Michigan!

Many viewers sent us their photos from Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and beyond.

Light pillars form in the cold when light reflects off ice crystals in the air.

You will be able to see them Wednesday night, as well.
