I don't know if this has been posted in the past, I didn't see it here. I think this is a good place to share this. The link will take you to several categories with photos of sun and moon halos, sun dogs, rainbows, pillars, coronas, etc. and explanations of how they are formed. There are also some tips on how to take photographs of them. Some of the photos taken of multiple halos in the Antarctic are amazing. Here is one photo example from the site of multiple ice crystal halos: 44 Parhelia

Be sure to check the 'What's New?' page. Enjoy!

Atmospheric Optics

"Light playing on water drops, dust or ice crystals in the atmosphere produces a host of visual spectacles - rainbows, halos, glories, coronas and many more. Some can be seen almost every day or so, some are once in a lifetime sights. Find out where to see them and how they are formed. Then seek and enjoy them outdoors."
