One halo form

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Dim 22r in the daytime sky. Later in the evening at 9 pm I also saw a 22r in the hotel yard around the Moon but there was no suitable camera to document it. The next morning there was quite a snowstorm.

Several halo forms

This halo phenomenon knew that rain was coming like many times before. It started to snow around 11 o'clock and has already accumulated comfortably on the ground.

The hearing showed the base ring for some time in the evening. The snowfall had just started and there was no ice mist yet so it was born in the upper clouds because the halo was still visible at home for half the night. The cell phone image fools because it looks like it could have a 9 'ring but wasn't visible to the eye.

Rare halos

A nice haloshow in the light of the moon struck strangely after a long relentless season. I put the camera to capture the stack as soon as I got home from things. Zykki and 120 ° saur also shone brightly in the sky for a while, but the latter in particular faded away really quickly. Fortunately, it had barely fit in the camera's field of view. After that, I went to another camera to take pictures of the whole sky, but the best moment had already passed. Even the northern lights seemed to stick to the full sky. The main image is a gif animation from 9:32 pm to 10:02 pm, images of unprocesse...

Jag fotograferade månens Gloria (22 graders båge) när norrskenets båge började mötas från öst. The luggage racks up to the top of the Himlen and the sea from the other side of the Himlen

Around the sun was a halo reflected from the calm surface of the lake, forming an oval.

Töhnää was in the early evening in the sky with northern lights, but around midnight it became clearer when the moonlight came out better. The northern lights, however, escaped. Pajamas on top of a tea cup in hand I went to the rinkula to take another picture.

Moon halos with northern lights at the same time. Only the 22nd degree ring was easily identifiable in the upper clouds. Images are not in chronological order.

On the sauna ice for a moment, the wondered "is that" line in the sky "dim Northern Lights" changed to "get the camera, don't steam the lens, remove the lens cap" : D I mostly leave the identification of halos to the wiser!

Harri Haukka, Warkauden Kassiopeia

A thin upper cloud caused a pretty halo in the moonlight. The halo was pretty nice, even though the light pollution was just moderate. Photographed on a mobile phone.

Several halo forms

19.10.2021 at 20.22 - 20.45 - Suomenniemi (III)
Risto Karhula, Ursa (Helsinki)

Halos on both sides of the moon. At first it looked as if the shadow or image of the moon had been in the halo on the right. The left appeared a little later. The picture is from this stage, taken at 20:38. In the picture, the moon and halos are angular, but when viewed from the eye the moon is round, almost a full moon. Likewise, the "shadows" of the moon were round. But the halos were initially "salmiak" shaped, the halos narrowed towards the end.

Ville Wahlman

It was observed from the balcony whether that is now a 22 ° ring. The wall and ceiling of the balcony blocked the view, so the whole halo could not be seen.

The approaching sleet in the afternoon gave birth to a base ridge.
