Spectacular solar halo appears in NE China

A magnificent solar halo was spotted on Saturday over Muling city, northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province. A ring of colorful light encircled the sun, caused by both refraction and reflection from ice crystals that spread in cirrus clouds drifting 6,000 meters or more high. Solar halos are relatively rare, and Muling’s last such occurrence took place in 2003.
