Yeah like...you do realize its not night where all of us are, its not the same time zone, and forever you thread here is going to be telling anyone reading......5 years from now...to "go outside and look..."

We arent where you are now...and still wont be in 5 years...nor its it night right now where I am...so...

At least THINK about threading when you do...after you post anything...its not BREAKING!, IMPORTANT! or HAPPENING NOW!'....because it wont be breaking anymore...we cant go out and look at it...and it will have happened already.....sigh

A thought lasts a second....but your thread....forever....and so in ICELAND....next year some morning...no one will understand what the heck you were going on about...sorry

PS Its also not an ECLIPSE...its a ring...shadow...whatever

Have you maybe, been staring at the sun too long?

High altitude, upper air ice crystals will cause the same effect.

ETA: Pic of ice crystals around sun.

There is a little "posted on" thingy right above each and every post.

Just in case you haven't noticed buddy.

OP's video just posted above:



This is very likely just a classic 22° Circular Halo:




22º radius halos are visible all over the world and throughout the year. Look out for them (eye care!) whenever the sky is wisped or hazed with thin cirrus clouds. These clouds are cold and contain ice crystals in even the hottest climes.

The halo is large. Stretch out the fingers of your hand at arms length. The tips of the thumb and little finger then subtend roughly 20°. Place your thumb over the the sun and the halo will be near the little finger tip.

The halo is always the same diameter regardless of its position in the sky. Sometimes only parts of the complete circle are visible.

Much smaller coloured rings around the sun or moon are a corona produced by water droplets rather than ice crystals.

Go look up "parhelion" in google image search, see if that's what it looks like.

They're very interesting to see. You're about to have some bad weather, usually.

Alright here's an image from a friend of a friend of mine who lives close.

So its a halo? o.O weird i've heard halos are actually evil. Not sure how true that is though.

I mean no sarcasm here but people really need to look up and look around more often.

Oh and eclipse means to cover or obscure not a halo or circle. Although I will say I have a nice laugh.
