I have posted numerous sun halo pictures over the years, and so I wanted to share my catch today with you!
I actually saw this amazing rainbow reflected in a car windshield on my way outside and confused (the weather wasn't suiting to a rainbow, and the
angle odd), looked up. I was amazed to see the brightest arc ever. I ran in and grabbed my camera and managed to get a few pictures before it
Here is the whole thing...faint halo around the sun, and then the 'upside down rainbow', or a circumzenithal arc, above it:
Here is a zoom in on it, and the colors saturated so you can see the other, faint arc under it:
And here is a better picture of the halo, with the contrast/brightness saturated to make it look cool
Here is some INFO
on what it is and how it forms. It is NOT a sun halo, but rather,
another part of the same phenomenon that happens at different angels/atmospheric conditions.
I caught this Circumhorizontal arc
(also called a fire rainbow) last year. (same area,
near my house)
Just when I think I have seen all there is to see, I get surprised! LOVE IT!
Remember to look UP!!
