Ring/Halo Around The Sun

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

"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.
