is it a rainbow or halo

strange rainbow in downtown

We observed this strange rainbow in middle of sky at 10.30am from our office building near Stewart and Denny in downtown.
Looks like a halo. It disappeared after few mins.

Barium and Aluminum and Strontium OH MY! Nah, just ice. Great picture of a 22 degree halo.

Its a chemdog caused by chemtrails from barium, aluminum and sometimes strontium. Your breathing it.

Could be sundog. It's a small part of a rainbow when you're towards at the sun. But its usually not this big. A normal rainbow, the sun is behind you.

This was visible from south of Mt. Rainier. I'm in Packwood.

I saw this strange rainbow today too from the Columbia Tower! I thought it was just a strange angle of the window or something. Interesting.

Wow.. I was hearing about this incident in the jam packed super market. people have started hoarding stuff in the fear of imminent alien attack. History tells us that this rainbow like ring is a precursor to the alien entry in the atmosphere. :O ga
