One halo form

Moon column. The pillar was visible for a few minutes. I didn’t have time to take a picture during the best view.

Several halo forms

I was supposed to photograph the dog in the yard, but there was a nice looking halo phenomenon to photograph and I snapped a few pictures.

There were such messy double pillars that I had to stop at the side of the road to shoot. Senverra’s desire for comfort (or laziness) struck me that I was content to take pictures of the car’s warmth, through the windshield. Vertical view of "steering wheel", horizontal view of "dashboard".

The sun pillar and column wounds reached the shield to the heavens. The wounds took the victory. But the race was not fair, the perspective favored the aspens.

Halo feels like enough for the day, if for another. Fortunately, there are opportunities to practice describing these.

The rise of the moon was to be photographed, but plans changed due to the clouds to depict the artificial light pillars.

Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

My first lunar observation, targeting a 22 ° ring. Even the sieves seem to be less than 22 degrees away. The halo continued for at least half past eight. DSS used in stacking ... 1.-3. image of stacks, in first and third violent USM, 4. image of single image edited

Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

Ice crystals abound in the air. The pictures now had to be content with a cell phone camera. Some reference to Shulthess, as before, and perhaps to Moila, but so weak that it cannot be marked.

Rare halos

15.1.2014 at 22.40 - Muonio (IV)
Sauli Koski, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

In Lapland, large temperature differences on short trips when in the center of Muonio the meters showed -37 yesterday and 18km away at the payroll was only -6.5 degrees. Terribly ice crystals in the air and halos can be seen in abundance. An ellipse was found in a small area around the moon around the moon that changed and swayed indiscriminately. Halo was recorded together with Kari Auto. The ellipse was visible for about 20min.

16.1.2014 at 18.01 - Mikkeli (I)
Kalle Vahlman, Mikkelin Ursa

Leaving home for the city, I saw the sun pillar seen yesterday in its former place, so I grabbed it according to the camera, thinking that when I return, there may be a good chance to see the most beautiful manifestation of the city's light sphere. It wasn't the most handsome show of all and the description from the roof of the car was by no means particularly successful, but I still got other family members to work on these miracles :)

The upper and lower pillars of the moon. Were really look like an awkward item to just record on camera. The pillar above gradually disappeared as the moon rose higher.

Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

From the kitchen window I noticed that artificial light pillars are visible, after photographing I noticed that apparently the density of ice mist varied quite strongly because in some of the pictures (here’s another one) the pillars are faintly visible above and below each month.

Joni Alavesa

This is how I went today to shoot on the ice of the Gulf of Tornio, the ice between the bay between Sweden and Finland. The third picture is my first few HDR tests. Mie I don't notice anything other than the sun pillar and the side suns .. Is there anything else perhaps in the picture as well?
