Here is a report for you. I have received a number of reports like this in the past. This look is a shaft of light, or ice particles in the air and light reflecting off of them. Pretty cool stuff.

      Yes, it appears to be due to ice crystals in the atmosphere. I don’t know the weather conditions, but the site location is at a high latitude so it was probably quite cold.
