Sun Halo

Sun Halo 001??????????
A “sun halo” or “sun dog” appeared in the sky over the Tampa Bay area and Florida this afternoon. NASA and meteorologists say the halo or sunburst of light forms when the sun’s rays are refracted by ice crystals in cirrus clouds and during cool weather. When a rainbow forms, the sunlight is refracted by moisture in the atmosphere. These photos were taken around 6 p.m. EST.
