As the other poster mentioned, that's a 'Halo'.
Its caused by ice in the upper atmosphere.
I am not sure if there has been any research into the topic or not, but the frequency of these types of events seems to be increasing as of late. I
know that I have seen them here on a regular basis over the last few years, and cannot name a handful of times in my life that I have seem them prior
to then. Maybe its a result of climate change, and we can expect to see even more of these as time goes on.
seem to similarly be increasing in frequency and location, and also are
suspected to be the result of changes in our climate.
