Yes we had a sun halo in Singapore yesterday 18th August 2012.
I don’t think I have ever seen one before. Certainly Mary and the kids had not, so we spent about 15 minutes passing my sun glasses between each other to look at this absolutely amazing sight.
Basically a halo is, as the name suggests, a ring around the sun or moon that looks like a circular rainbow. Just a beautiful thing. We saw this yesterday at about 1300, just after we left hawker for lunch.
Check this out, how beautiful is this. Not the best quality sorry as I only had the camera on my BlackBerry. But saying that, you get the picture right – just amazing. What you don’t get is the colours, truly it was rainbow rings, huge rainbow rings around the sun in a beautiful clear sky.
