Laval University Campus in Google Earth

Last month I wrote about a Google Earth campus map created for Bowdoin College. Now, a company in Quebec, Canada has created a 3D map of Laval University campus. In this case, the main campus buildings have simple 3D models overlayed on top of the satellite photos in GE to help enhance the feel of the campus. Placemarks provide photos and links to more information (in French). GeoWebServices appears to be an enterprising new geographic information services company which is currently occupying a non-profit .org domain name.

    I took the goggle tour and went back to the area at the North Pole. When I zoomed in on it I noticed light coming from it. I have saved some photos, which I thought were amazing. They have rainbows from this light. Could someone please tell me what the light is and why is it coming from this area. Thanks John
