Look at this photo of a cupola: http://tinyurl.com/67sj4q8 None of the structural beams of the cupola actually point downwards. And yet, in the image, most of them seem to point downward, by simple perspective. Similarly, if there was a searchlight located behind the photographer, and pointed to the convergence area, it would appear as a streak going from the top of the photo to the convergence area. If it was also located to the right of the photographer, then it's just conceivable it could appear exactly like the beam Maccabee suggested was a de/reflection. You can also imagine that all the light beams of the searchlights are equivalent to the structural beams of a cupola, with the convergence area at the center, and this is the important part, the photographer would be *inside* this cupola of light. In fact, that would seem like Albert Speer's "Cathedral of Light". Even when the light beams were pointed directly to the sky, those inside the Light Cathedral saw as if the beams were going over them. >>Or it could simply be that its source on the left was not >>recorded in the poor quality image. >Actually, for a night shot I think the image is pretty good.

If you assume a homogeneous atmosphere and many other assumptions, yes, but it could simply be that the right part of the image had a more thick atmosphere than parts of the left.
