Weather

After a hot, cloudless day a strong wind brought in high cirrus clouds followed by low dark ones.  As the sun began to drop we saw this eerie and strange phenomenon that produced a rainbow and sun rays.  It lasted for about thirty minutes.

  5. Where was it taken - it looks like a halo absolutely amazing must have been waiting for you to arrive. Might be worth sending to a weather man and asking what it is.
