Ah! We pick the topic for this one! I think I’ll go with the phenomenal sun halo we saw last year in June. It was an amazing sight that got even better with the clouds. According to earthsky.org “Halos around the sun or moon are caused by high, thin cirrus clouds drifting high above your head. Tiny ice crystals in Earth’s atmosphere create the halos. They do it by refracting and reflecting the light. Lunar halos are signs that storms are nearby.”
This halo was extremely vivid. The photos were taken with my iPhone. The halo was enormous and felt like it was right on top of us. The teal dot is from the camera, which I will probably remove in the future.
It was incredible to see and I’m so happy we noticed it and got photos. So many people were going about their lives and never noticed it. I find that a shame.
