Several halo forms - 2.4.2014 at 17.01 Ikaalinen Observation number 23593

Visibility II / V

I returned from work and watched the sky look like there could be halos. I went to the beach in Luhalahti and there were halos visible - halo april is underway. 22r was visible immediately, the top side was also brightening, 46r was also partially visible, as well as the side suns. My exposures went too bright, but now I was trying to make something visible by darkening the images. To cover the sun, I wrapped some sticks of what was found on the beach.
