I had just released the first observation of pyramid halves from the queue today and was left waiting for the crystal area to arrive to the southeast. I was grilling in the yard when I noticed that there are now a weak 23 upper parelles. I was just turning the sea salmon in the halstar when I suddenly sighed that there is a so-called alkaline lower 9 degree parchment under the Sun, so to speak. Otherwise, let's hurry to change the fisheye of the camera! Back suddenly and I also noticed another colorful parish from the sky. I think that's a 24 degree lower par. Pretty soon the sky got s...

Now, I can’t quite say what these might show in addition to that 22-degree halo. Maybe some pyramid halo in that first one?

I read the leaves in the yard while watching the clouds. A moment ago, an ordinary 22-degree ring appeared in the upper clouds accumulating in the sky, but then other arches appeared inside it that I had not seen before. Here are a couple of images with different light values. phenomenon.

As we played badminton, I noticed that a 22-degree ring was visible in the gauze cloud in the sky, and when I looked more closely, other rings were visible. This was followed by a quick rush to the camera to take pictures. Luckily, there was a badminton guy who kept the welding glass as a shade. I’m not entirely sure of the identifications because I haven’t seen pyramid halves before. There are both unprocessed and believed versions of the images.

Had just taken home from the store home and a horrible Saturday rush on, when I first noticed a 22 ° ring in the sky. A weak year of observation motivates you to grab a camera and look again and luckily so ...

Bright pyramid halves! EDIT: The first picture was taken with the Lumia 920. Added images with Canon EOS 450D and extended observation time. I quickly made the first observation to alert others as well. Then I watched the play for about an hour until the cloud curtain thickened. 24 lower parhels were quite clear, 9 lower parhels is a somewhat uncertain observation, but I ticked it nonetheless. I imagine seeing a 35 degree ring in the fourth picture, but I'm already pretty sure about that ... The 46-degree ring was clearly visible but dim at 4:45 p.m. After 5pm there seemed to be only a 22 ...
