  • Sun Halo Gives Special Treat for Folks on the Avalon

    (Photo submitted by Jeremy Morgan.)

    Folks on the Avalon Peninsula were treated to an unusual celestial sight today, as the sun put on a show with its very own halo.

    Jeremy Morgan snapped a few photos from his patio in Bay Roberts after he witnessed the halo appear in the air at around 1:00, Friday afternoon.

    The phenomenon is also known as a 22° halo, which is formed when light from the sun or moon refracts through hexagonal ice crystals hanging in the atmosphere.

    It earns its name as the light forms a ring with a radius of about 22° around the sun.

    Those ice crystals appear when the sky is covered with thin cirrus or cirrostratus clouds.
