KEY LARGO -- Meteorologist Matt Strahan said he assured several callers to the National Weather Service in Key West on Tuesday that the world was not coming to an end.
''We had about 150 calls and a lot of people walked in to ask about it,'' Strahan said. ``They had never seen it before.''
The strange sight seen in the skies throughout the Keys is known as the rare halo phenomenon.
''I think they are only seen when the sun is very high in the sky, directly overhead,'' Strahan said. ``Once the sun started heading toward the West, it disappeared.''
