Today I got to see a beautiful full sun halo with double sun dogs! I have seen this once before, earlier this year but didn't have my camera with
me. I did today! So I managed to get some pictures and was thrilled...and then I noticed something a bit interesting in the first one. Now, I am
not trying to claim anything here, I just think it odd and know there is a wealth of knowledge here on ATS that can probably explain it away.
I will show you the picture first!
Here it is, untouched:
Here is the same picture with the contrast and shadows tweaked:
See what I'm talking about? The little ball above and to the left of the sun? I know, I know.....let's see. The most common things to cause these
types of images: Sun flare, a bird, dust, a bug, something on the lense, motion....I am sure I missed some.
SO..there was nothing there in the pictures before or after this one. I didn't see anything when i took the picture. So while this post is really
about sharing the picture of the sun halo, I thought my friends here might enjoy a little mystery to solve at the same time.
Here it is up-close. It looks like a perfect circle with depth and no blur. ?
