In astronomy, the street-lamps drive to light pollution. They mask dim objetcs because they light up the sky.
But sometimes, this blemish becomes esthetic. This is the caase that night of January 2003, when a light smoke (originated from a chimney) is blocked near the floor by a layer of cold air. Ths artificial mist draws the light cones of the two kind of street-lamps, one orange, the other one greenish.
Above, the stars of the Taurus, Orion and Auriga, along with the Pleiades and Jupiter (near one of the Taurus horn) shine mindless of our pour life of amateur astronomers.
