So uncertain about the halo that I included the word "maybe" in the image folder name. After BR processing, it was possible to remove "maybe" from the folder name.

Over the course of the day, the cloud cover had thinned enough that the Moon could be seen fairly well in the sky, so I grabbed my Nikon superzoom and went outside to photograph the Moon. However, there was enough cloud cover that even the 22° halo ring was visible, so I had to photograph it as well. The first picture with Nikon and the second with Canon + fisheye lens (cropped) combination.

On the morning of Independence Day, nice upper clouds, with first 22r+22ys, later also side suns. In the afternoon, the lower clouds prevailed again and nothing could be seen anymore.

For a long time, there is more than gray clouds in the sky. The halo camera recorded a 22-degree ring around the Moon that was visible for more than two hours.

Hello seen! Last month, there was not a single halo sighting in my statistics, although the Sun wasn't too bright either. The main image is a blurred stack of 30 images at 19:47-19:58, the second is the last image of the stack without processing. And that was it, when the sky became completely cloudy again.

Watched it for about 2o minutes and it kept shifting. From the beginning 22 degree halo and bisolar to more and more components.

Carpe Diem. Now you have to seize those small moments, when something more than just a gray mass of clouds is available. The copter caught the morning pillar.

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Is there a solar pillar in these pictures, it was ten degrees below zero in Kokkola. An ND8 filter has been used in the wider picture where the clouds are formed as if by a bird's wing.

Pillars of light were reflected from the neighbor's yard, behind the house, up to the mid-sky.

On the singing stage, cannons on and light ice fog. Yes, it was less common, but I interpreted it to mean that you liked that bosta. Unusually windy weather. It would have been a decent ice fog if it was calmer. - - - - - Update: I made a 60 km trip to Tuupovaara and there was noise all the way except for one short section. The ice fog seen on the singing stage was the same and the cannons had no part in it. This interpretation was confirmed when, on the way to Tuupovaara, we encountered real cannon ice fog. First I noticed a typical gray flat mass in front as shown in picture 3. In picture fo...

The previous observation must have disappeared into the bit space. , So the sun pillar shone brightly today.

On Ruka, nice halos could be seen again in the ice fog. Would there be anything else in those sauri when the stump rises up? The lower side suns may be below.

A momentary flash of light on a cloudy and snowy day offered a gentle pillar to see.

Sunday 20.11. at around 12:30 a wonderful halo phenomenon, when there were wonderful and bright side suns on both sides of the Sun. The phenomenon was visible for at least an hour before the Sun began to set behind the horizon. Although the picture is great, on both sides the colors of the light spectrum were really bright and excellent. In the picture, which was taken with a mobile phone, only a very small part of the colors can be seen, unlike in nature. I've seen many side suns, but this one was the best of them all.

I don't know the exact time for the beginning and the end. My estimate is between 12:40 and 1:20 p.m. Snow on Pyhätunturi causes ice fog, etc.
