Rare halos

The issue of Haloh April was quite small, but May started with a nice variety. Before there was more clouding, there was a dim basic double above and below the side and side suns, the horizon ring was also visible inside the double and zyk was visible at the beginning of the show. Rarely involved in the upper concave Parry.

I saw that there is a small pillar in the sun and as a precaution I started taking pictures, which then showed as if it were an elliptical halo.

Halo phenomena covering the sky

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.

I guess the most beautiful halos in halo in April, at least here in Central Finland.

Rare halos

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.

Rare halos

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...
