An amazing solar halo was captured in Volgodonsk

This amazing photo of the solar halo was taken by Elena from the city of Volgodonsk.

One of the earliest descriptions of this phenomenon is found in the "Tale of Bygone Years", dated 1104.

"In the same year there was a sign: the sun stood in a circle, and in the middle of the circle was a cross, and in the middle of the cross was the sun, and outside the circle on both sides were two suns, and above the sun outside the circle was an arc, horns to the north."

Now we know that the halo is not a "sign", but simply one of the types of optical atmospheric phenomena, and it arises due to the refraction of the sun in ice crystals.
