Halo, halo, halo

On the way to the shops, admin2 saw a halo

On the way home, the halo had gone but a sundog persisted. Hooray for Cirrus!

Lots of halo action today: a faint 22 degree halo, a faint circumzenithal arc and several faint sundogs, but they were mostly too washed-out and fleeting to photograph

Weather of the Day: Halo Sweetie…

Seems like someone in the Doctor Who special effects department knows a bit about about halos. This surprisingly accurate rendition is from Series 4, Episode 6: The Doctor’s Daughter, about 30 minutes in.
