Last Saturday, I was out in the yard pulling weeds and looked up at the sky and saw this. This photo doesn’t do it justice because it was a HUGE multi-colored ring around the sun.
My first thought was, “What does it mean?” Not really thinking of any sort of apocolyptic significance, just wondering if it meant bad weather, good weather……….. what?
So, I googled and learned that this is a solar halo and it was caused by ice crystals in the earth’s atmosphere. Apparently, this and other very photogenic atmospheric phenomnon are not uncommon during the spring of the year.
