"Iridescent Sea Smoke"
Canal Park's North Pier Lighthouse is a brilliant beacon amidst Lake Superior's sea smoke. The rising full moon backlit the morphing sea smoke and created some iridescence. The iridescence in the clouds occurs when the moonlight is scattered or bent as it passes through ice crystals in the clouds.
