Sun Halo and Cirrus Clouds

Sun Halo is an optical phenomenon that occurs around the sun or the moon while there are very high cirrus clouds in the atmosphere.

And what are Cirrus clouds?

These are the thin, wispy clouds which form in the upper level of the troposphere. They are characterized by thin, wispy strands.

You must have definitely seen these clouds. The picture below will help you recollect them.


And some interesting pictures of the sun halo are right below.


God - definitely was a good designer. He had several such landscape pictures in his kitty - and he shows it to us time and again!!
