Cloudbow visible from the ground

Eero Savolainen

In the northern sky, the sun directly behind. It looked like a rainbow in the cloud, not really a halo. I don't know if the cloud was left by an airplane. And I’m certainly not at all an amateur expert at all. So I don't know what I saw ... And a picture taken with a bad cell phone camera.

Halo phenomena covering the sky

15.10.2019 at 10.45 - 11.05 - Tampere (IV)
Eero Savolainen

The bright autumn morning brought remarkably bright 22 and 46 overhanging arches to the sky. Side sun modest spot, horizon ring I did not notice visually. Instead, as sugar on the bottom, intersecting arcs appeared at the counter-sun point for a few minutes at the end of the play, extending several degrees, especially above the counter-sun. For themselves, they are a rare treat and difficult to identify. Pictures from a cell phone camera.
