My sister Susan was kind enough to forward the photos for scientific analysis to my cousin Michael, an atmospheric scientist. Here is what he said: “I remember seeing the same optical effect in the sky in eastern Massachusetts that day. This is called a halo, which always surrounds the sun, and it occurs when there are very thin, very high clouds in the sky (you can … Continue reading Double Halo Around the Sun – Scientific Analysis
