Had Sophie for a walk around Point Pleasant Park yesterday.
I had noticed that the light was a little subdued and different,
so I looked up and noticed this huge ring/halo around the sun,
almost like a circular rainbow.
I googled this phenomena and found this on www.weatherprediction.com
"The ring around the sun or moon is caused by ice crystals within thin cirrus clouds. The refraction causes light to shine into a ring. Cirrus clouds are generally the first layer of clouds that are seen as a storm system approaches."
So there you have it folks......the science behind it.
