Rainbow Cloud

    Newer Older

    Saw this in the sky today. I tried not to alter the images in Photoshop much keeping them true to what I saw. The local news referred to it as a "sundog" or an ice halo saying "They form when sunlight passes through thin, cirrus clouds composed of ice crystals."

    cherrylann, 89AKurt, USA Dream, and 43 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Wow what a shot, I love how only one or two people picked up on the B-17! I saw this on a science page, and noticed the shape of the B-17 right away, two rare things happening in one shot, impressive!
