If you’re anything like me, your Facebook feed was flooded with images of this mysterious halo around the sun. Well, being the type of person that I am, of course I needed to:
- Photograph it
- Learn all that I could about what made it happen
For you non-nerds out there, it’s basically just the sun’s light bouncing off of thousands of ice crystals contained in very high, very thin clouds. Sorry, it’s not a viral advertisement for a new apocalypse movie (I’ll be patenting that).
Can you see the ring from where you are? Leave a comment with where you can see it from. WARNING: Never look directly into the sun. Please wear sunglasses or use a Neutral Density filter on your camera.
