Kakskakkonen ring with upper side.

Rare halos

Johannes Dahlström

Stumbled upon while walking around in the center of Tampere. In addition to the usual 22° stuff, there was more to be found in the sky when I stayed for a while to look. The contrast and clarity of the images have been increased, which brought Parry quite clearly into view. I can't vouch for the identity of the 46° halo, but apparently ysk is more likely than a ring?

Rare halos

3.10.2022 at 11.46 - 11.57 - Salo (IV)

In that most recent video, I tried to record the view that was transmitted to me, i.e. "matter" came out of the upper arc just like in a coronal eruption, but I can't distinguish it in this video. But the sky was great for a moment.

Driving along the western route, you could see the sun behind the misty cloud cover and half a halo around it. Unfortunately, the pictures were only taken with a mobile phone, from a moving car.

Several bright halo forms

3.10.2022 at 09.30 - 10.30 - Janakkala (III)
Timo Martola, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Hey, I photographed two nested halo rings (22 and 46 degrees) and their upper lateral arches(?) and ZYK in the courtyard of the Janakkala municipal hall. A jet also flew into the picture. The phenomenon was impressive, like the last greeting of a recently deceased person to a friend who has lost a loved one, score 4/5. It was about 10:20. The first time I noticed the phenomenon was in my backyard an hour earlier.

Start with a pilari + ys combination in the morning, and additionally in the morning another 22° ring and side sun. Occasionally, during the day, a ring/ys of things can be separated, and in the afternoon, zykki will be on display for a while.

A bright 22ys started the halo day, by nine also came 22r, side suns and solar pillar. When after ten there was another chance to observe the sky, you could still see the side suns otherwise the sky was covered by lower clouds.
