There seems to be a discussion ongoing at present about what could possibly have caused a bizarre halo in the sky that was filmed from Hawaii.
We know that it isn't a youtube hoax, as it comes from a reputable source. And some astronomers are genuinely puzzled, though there are some possible
explanations being floated around.
Anyhow, it seems like the sort of thing that will be discussed ad nauseum on ATS, so let the speculation begin.
Here is a site that contains both the video and some speculation about what it might be, which is almost as interesting:
I don't have any idea myself as to what it might be, so I won't speculate too much, except to say that it looks like a shock wave of some
description. However, I don't understand why the shock wave should be *visible*, rather than audible.
It seems unlikely that it is anything to do with the aurora, as it is filmed in Hawaii.
