Sun Halo

The pictures of the sun halo were taken earlier this summer. It was the weirdest, coolest thing to see. I edited these 2 pictures differently. The bottom one is in HDR.

"Rings around the sun are caused by cirrus clouds -- high altitude clouds that form above 30,000 feet. Cirrus clouds form when water droplets condense around tiny mineral particles in the air, then freeze. The clouds appear to form a ring around the sun -- or the moon -- when light reflects off the ice crystals and refracts by passing through them." (ehow.com)
