One halo form

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Haloh April in a package with a diffuse pillar. In summary, although the days of observation came in moderation, they began quietly and ended quietly. Just one rarity for the whole of April.

Several halo forms

The decision of Halohu April lasted until May Day. In the evening, the dim halos were visible for a short time.

Well, those halos weren't on the morning show yet. I was changing tires for another car, when in the sky the attention was drawn by a fairly distinct horizon tire. No more fast tool changes and phenomena recovered.

Let there be an observation only on the closing day of halohir April, even though the sky was mostly cloudy. However, a side sun and an arc 22 ° below the pool were visible from the cloud gap. Second image USM version of the first and third mobile phone wide angle.

May Day delicacies. The upper three pictures from the direction of Korsnäs. Unfortunately, the rest of the horizon ring drowned in the lower clouds :(

Afternoon halona 22r and 22ys. There happened to be different colored goggles on the dashboard so I took a few pictures through them.

The last day of April offered a long-lasting halo. Sometimes the clouds covered the sun, but whenever the clouds receded, some halo shape was visible.

For a long time, a special halo was seen in Keljonkangas and Sääksvuori in Jyväskylä, which was around the sun and was a so-called double the two points. Still showing at 1:50 p.m.

Rare halos

30.4.2022 at 11.35 - 15.15 - Kouvola (IV)
Tero Sipinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Haloh April was pretty weak, only 14 days hit its own halos, two of them rarities. And that other rarity day was this May Day event. I noticed a clear overhead arc in half of the twelve countries. I was thinking of taking a decent stack from the balcony, but after eleven pictures, the wind ripped the slip of the magnetic-covered cover off the balcony. Luckily it was found in the yard and I was able to continue the descriptions again. The set didn't look any marvelous except for the bright top, and the lower clouds sailed badly in front of me and everything else had to be done, but in addit...

Heavy clouds scattered. I wonder if the 120-degree small side suns are visible.

Haloh April. So that the bonga doesn't fall into the last drop ... The usual 22-degree backpack pops up, but otherwise nice clouds. Some color in the clouds after image processing but not visible to the naked eye.

Tuhnua halo forms. Agree to mainly 22ys

Rare halos

30.4.2022 at 09.00 - 17.00 - Juva (IV)
Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

The last day of Haloh April served a few momentary halo rarities. The halos were visible from the morning, but at first the mood was quite sluggish. Over the afternoon, 22ys, 46r, and 46as brightened, but the lower clouds effectively hampered observation. At 16:30, Parry, who stood out with his naked eyes, appeared on the ground (Figures 1-3). However, it soon weakened and was left almost immediately behind the clouds. I then photographed the stack away from the Sun, with the idea of getting an observation from a poorly separated horizon ring at 120 ° saur. It went undetected this time, instea...
