Cool
Went out to go fly yesterday and saw this in the sky

When I went outside to go fly my Radian yesterday around noon I saw something in the sky that I have only ever seen in pictures. There was a second halo around the sun, offset at a strange angle, and only white, not a rainbow like the main ring.

-- Apparently it's called a "parhelic circle"..

These are pics that were in focus, I couldn't get the entire display in the FOV even though this is a wide angle lens for a pocket cam.

There’s an old weather saying: "ring around the moon means rain soon".
