Ring Around the Sun at Pike Place

We were enjoying a nice afternoon at Pike Place and happened to look up. I couldn't resist taking a quick picture. :-)

I agree... all caused by chemtrails.

Whoops, I was wrong. Looks just like a normal ice halo.

Its a chemdog and they are caused by all the chemtrails. Stop lying to us. Its not natural.

Atmospheric optics were documented centuries before planes were in the sky. Quit trollin.

This chemical fog caused by all the chemtrails we see daily caused the chemdog. Atmospheric optics is a lie on this one.

Chris stop the denial. Its a chemdog and you know it.

Thats not a sundog. Thats a chemdog. They are caused by continuous chemtrails that the news tries to hide from us.

You're right Sandy, it's not a sundog... parhelia (sundogs) are different from the 22 degree halo pictured here.

Fred, the problem with the chemtrail explanation is that it doesn't account for the refractive properties of the sky causing the halo. Barium and aluminum salts don't bend sunlight, they reflect it. And please refrain from telling me what I know.
