The circle around the sun is whats known in the meterological world as a halo. The one you photographed is called a 22 degree circular, which is one of the most common of the halo types. It is caused by the refraction of sunlight in ice crystals, found in cirrus and cirrostratus clouds at around 30,000ft in the atmosphere
Nothing unusual about it at all
Great pic to

Well, they were mighty unusual to me and I have just recently started researching chemtrails so there you go. I've been an ATS fan for some time now and I wanted to share some cool pix and get some info. And now I have an explanation for it. There's so much to learn here and share. A great many people here are more knowledgeable than I am, so some of my info may seem mundane to some. It's still great getting feedback to encourage more research. I look forward to posting something new to everyone. Now...to find it....
