Sun halo

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 11, 2009 by Andrew

I didn’t have a chance to see the full moon due to clouds and snow but,I WAS treated to a icebow,which is a  atmospheric phenomenon caused by light being refracted by ice crystals high in the atmosphere.Seeing the halo was by chance as I had decided to step outside to get a breath of fresh air when I suddenly saw a very bright sundog.imgp4372

In a short period of time (5-10 minutes) the sundog grew into a halo which brightened and became more colorful as time wore on 🙂 .
