Sun Circle

I just went outside a few moments ago and was amazed to catch this unexpected glimpse of a rainbow circling the sun. Up until recent years, I had read about them, but had not actually seen one myself. Only a moment later and the rainbow was gone. I consider it a privilege and a blessing to share this wonderously colorful Sun Circle with you.

I love the halo around the sun, I don't know if it has a special name, but I have heard moonbows called moon dogs. Whatever it's name it is magical to get to see them. Love the picture.

Great shot! So often those opportunities come when no camera is available. Another wonder is "sun dogs"... two upward bars of light on each side of the sun. It's been at least 20 years since I've seen either the halo or the dogs.

thank you, I didn't know that. The Argentinan news said it was pollution inspired, I had never heard of them before. Yours is a great pick too!
