Just as I was sitting at the table in the market, I noticed the halos in the sky. Suddenly I had to crack the pictures before the ice cream melted on my fingers. In that quarrel, my cell phone also went to ice cream. Even later in the afternoon, the 22 ° ring was well visible.

I got at least a 22 ° ring, a 22 ° upper arch and side suns. I’m not sure if you can even see a little 46 ° ring or just imagine. I'm sorry the pictures are tilted, I don't know how they are always added to the yell undo. :)

Driving home from the cottage, a halo was visible for a long time. The red sun pillar was well visible, but it doesn’t look very strange in these momentum shots.

Today at the Northern Finland Wilderness Fair I got a haloeli when I saw the horizon ring! At first the side suns were visible and after a while also the horizon ring. Modest, but I jumped for joy when I finally saw this phenomenon as well.

Going to the balcony I saw such intense color in the clouds and suddenly I had to run inside to pick up my cell phone so I could grab a picture. I grabbed a couple of pictures to grab before the halo was gone. As a novice heaven watcher, I would argue that the halo would be the arc of the zenith environment.

Past days! Yesterday I started researching the phone to see what kind of halos it has actually come from previously described. There were some nice halos, but poor pictures. : D Here’s a picture from just over a year ago when I was hooked on what is zyk! I got a few pictures of it where the nipple button it shows. Now afterwards and a couple of things wiser, I would almost dare to argue that there would also be a little 22 ° upside down a bit? Or what's in there?

Rare halos

Old picture. I have long liked to take pictures of halo phenomena, but it is only in the last year that I have learned names for them. And it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I used to record observations here as well. This photo was taken two years ago from a bus and shot with a phone with a bad camera. That's when I said but that the picture shows a halo. Now afterwards I looked at the picture and would argue that there are at least three kinds of it.
