Rare halos - 22.1.2017 at 04.00 Rovaniemi Observation number 60321

Visibility IV / V

Even though I knew from the call I was that the cannons were not on, I still decided to check. Apparently there was nothing better to do. In the parking lot, I found the car in a very rough icing on the outward-laying crystal wings. I glanced around me. On the side, there was a car in the most suitable place in terms of lights, which also grew abundant crystal grass. And on its roof, as expected, a piece of the fork of a surface solar arc was visible.

I went for a ride and went to different openings - lakes, fields, wastelands - but nowhere was there a similar crystal and no phenomenon was seen.

Mielenkiintoisista paikoista näköjään löytyy haloharvinaisuuksia. Hyvän näköistä kidettä auton katolla.
