One halo form

11.5.2022 at 17.10 - 17.30 - Hanko (I)
Pirjo Nyman

The biggest halo I've ever seen, the size of which I couldn't even comprehend at first. The picture below shows the Hanko water tower in the middle. Around the actual halo, a little further away, a blue "ring" appeared at times, as in this picture. The 12mm lens wasn't enough to capture the entire blue circle. I started filming halo at 5:10 p.m., but it might have been seen earlier when I was indoors.

Several halo forms

This halo phenomenon was seen on 14.10.2021 in the Hanko sky above the sun at approximately 14.44 - 14.58. Could it be an arc of a zenithal environment or some other arc? For the first time I saw such a halo. Pretty special sight. A small side hall of the sun appeared at almost the same time.

Partial lunar eclipse

Yesterday's partial eclipse of the moon in Hanko. What could go horizontally in the middle of the moon? Anyone with a satellite? Only two sets of multi-images show an almost horizontal line (there is hardly any insect flying in front of the lens). Pictures taken every three seconds at 21.59.33 and 21.59.36.

I hope the pictures are enough to tell you what I saw, I can't really say otherwise. In the first picture at 2.45 pm. the plane of the plane happened to have fun in the middle of the sun. Another photo taken at 14.53, also in the plane of the plane, but in a different place.
