44 times bigger than the sun!

On a walk in the Presidio of San Francisco–near the seafarers' cemetery–it became dark, all of a sudden! When I looked up, there was a circle around the sun, with mighty dark clouds moving across!

 

The phenomenon is called "22 Degrees Halo" as I learned only today: www.universetoday.com/18568/ring-around-the-sun/
