Tangent Arc at sunset

Shocking sunset

The sunset yesterday gave us a rare treat when a Tangent Arc appeared on top of the halo that had been visible all day Saturday. The sight is produced by ice crystals in the sky refracting the setting rays. Also visible was a sun pillar shooting up through the center of the halo.
