A Parry Arc appears as a beacon on the clouds during the Sunset.

A wonderful Parry Arc presents itself during a glorious sunset on July 25, 2010, seven minutes after Sunset
at Whiting New Jersey 8:33PM

I believe a Sun Pillar is also present, however the wide divergent “V” shape of the ice halo indicates a Parry Arc as well.
