a ring around the sun… some call it a rainbow.. but it’s actually a halo.
“It’s important to know that white light coming from the sun contains every color known to man. When that white light passes through a raindrop or ice crystal, each color is bent slightly and sent in a unique direction, creating the spread of colors we see. When raindrops are involved, the spread of colors appears as a bow across the sky. Since ice crystals are six-sided, the light is refracted differently creating a ring around the sun or moon.”
