Halo around the sun

The ring is caused by sunlight or moonlight being diffracted as it passes through cirrostratus clouds that are usually at altitudes above 20,000 feet. Cirrostratus clouds are composed mostly of small ice crystals that spread out into a thin layer. They are sheet-like, and the sun and moon can be seen through them easily. (From ehow.com)

This is the 22 degree halo formed by ice crystals in the sky. This is not a new phenomenon. Aristotle and Shakespeare both referenced the sight atmospheric optics. The ice crystals do this naturally without any help from us.

just noticed the halo. there are elongated clouds that are strange looking too. couldn't the normal contrail be changed by the ice crystals and that cause the clouds to look different from normal contrail? Ormond Beach FL

We are having a halo around the sun in Titusville FL today- no chemical sprays- no clouds- just a halo- I think chembo ideas are bogus- it's a natural phenomenon not a man made event- we certainly think we are powerful don't we?

Greg says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:12 PM

Morgellons, blood born pathogens or other toxins. Its not ice crystals. I also the the spray planes do it.

Kevin says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 6:56 PM

Chembow. I saw the chemplanes do it. Thats why so many people are sick right now.

Tammy says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 6:44 PM

Global dimming eugenics. Its a chembow.

Paul says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 6:36 PM

Thats is a chembow. Don't fall for the lie ablout the ice crystals. We started out with a blue sky. then the planes came and sprayed us. The elongated clouds spread out and caused the chembow. Don't be fooled.

I agree with John. Everybody saw the big white jets on that day. They were spraying us with some type of chemical. You could see it spread out. A normal contrail will disapate in about 15 to 30 seconds. These are NOT sundogs. They are toxic chembows.

John, you're clueless.

John says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 4:22 PM

John says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 4:22 PM

John says ... on Wednesday, May 12 at 4:16 PM
