A Circumzenithal Arc?



I was doing two of my favorite things in October; thrift store shopping and taking pictures. I came out of Goodwill looking at the sky and was instantly rewarded with what looked like a miniature rainbow. Of course I snapped. Wouldn't you?

Just a few weeks later I came across this article in our local newspaper about circumzenithal arcs or in layman terms "ice halos made by light passing through ice crystals in high cirrus clouds." The colors are not as vivid in my photo shots as they were that evening,  but I do hope you enjoy them and share your SkyWatch photos with us.  Share SkyWatch Friday with us. It is the beginning of a glorious week end. Take care & God bless!

We call them sundogs here. Beautiful captures of them. I posted one last week.

Thanks for sharing and enlightening us.

Those are awesome! Not sure I've ever seen anything quite like them before! Breathtaking, Judy! Hope you've had a good week -- Goodwill is one of my favorite shopping places, too! Enjoy your weekend!

Very cool, and yes I would have snapped this one too.

I have heard circumzenithal arcs called a "smile in the sky" because they look like a smile. Maybe this is part of one. I have seen lots of sun dogs but never one of the arcs.
