the circle

Ring Around the Sun
       From New Zealand’s Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park a glorious halo circled the sun over the snowcapped and cloud-shrouded mountains of the rugged Southern Alps.
      Such beautiful celestial displays occur when tiny ice crystals form in the Earth’s upper atmosphere and refract and reflect sunlight in a ring 44 degrees across. -
