Halos on Mar 30, 2018

The images and videos presented below where captured with two sky surveillance cameras, one pointing to southeast and the other one pointing to southwest.

Visible halo types are

  • 22° halo
  • Upper tangent arc
  • Parhelia (Sun dogs)
  • Parhelic circle
  • 120° parhelion (visible in the video and the still image from the southwest camera)
  • A very faint arc above the Parhelic circle visible in the moving clouds of both cameras. This arc seems to touch th 22° halo, i.e. it is most likely a part of the the Wegeners arc.
