Saw that one time in a display of weather like I've never seen before or since. It's a pity it was before phone cameras.
It was really hot and muggy, up in the high 90s, then this front came through. There was a jet black wall cloud with a razor sharp edge to it, totally
straight as far as you could tell, moved through faster than anything. The wind picked up really hard and gusty and the temp started dropping like a
rock. As the edge of the wall cloud moved over the sun, a four spot parhelia like that popped into place, with one image sun over the wall cloud, the
two top and bottom ones split between clear and black, and one in the clear area, with a perfect ring joining them all.
Didn't last but a few seconds.
Then, of course, it dropped about 50 degrees in an hour and rained like hell, so I guess we had to pay for seeing it the hard way.
eta: there's a few places, I think one is in Hawaii, where if you stand in a group on the edge of the cliff and there's a fog below you at the right
time of the day, you will see a circular rainbow around YOUR head but not the others in the group
