Oddly enough, I've seen a circular halo on a plane one time! It was really cool, and I wish I still had the photo

Were you inside the plane or outside?

It's been said this may have something to do with ice crystals moving within certain type of clouds but did think this was a freaky one.

If you post the full link, don't use the embed feature, which you tried to do and it doesn't work.

To use the embed feature, only post the part of the video link appearing after the equals sign, like this:



That's an optical effect called Glory, I've seen it too, many times.


A glory is an optical phenomenon that resembles an iconic saint's halo about the shadow of the observer's head, caused by light of the Sun or (more rarely) the Moon interacting with the tiny water droplets that make up mist or clouds. The glory consists of one or more concentric, successively dimmer rings, each of which is red on the outside and bluish towards the centre. Due to its appearance, the phenomenon is sometimes mistaken for a circular rainbow, but the latter has a much larger diameter and is caused by different physical processes.

Glories arise due to wave interference of light internally refracted within small droplets.


OzWeatherman who made this thread refers to the "Brocken Spectre" on page 1, which is also a Glory phenomenon, a specific type where the person also sees their own shadow in the mist (instead of the airplane's shadow in the airplane example) surrounded by the multicolored halo.
