  • Amazing Optical Display- Everything you’re seeing here can be explained. The Sun is the bright blob near the horizon. It’s circled by the 22° halo, a fairly common optical effect in the winter. On either side of the Sun are Parhelia, nicknamed Sundogs. Those are the teardrop-shaped rainbows. Sometimes, as seen here, these stretch out into long streamers called Parhelic Circles. Directly above the sun is a gull-wing curve called the tangent Arc; above it, is the Perry Arc.
