Vielen lieben Dank! :thanks:

This was, by the way, the first halo I ever saw. It was indeed, as you see, so striking that it could not be overseen. From that day on I knew how to look for them and see them quite often.

Except that I never get up until well past dawn I would like to do that :eager:  Maybe after David retires and we go to bed at a reasonable hour like normal people.  Though we have many months of the year with not a single cloud in the sky so it would be seasonal if we do get them at all.

The first thing does not have to be a problem - you can see them in the evening as well. Where you live, halos are for sure seasonal. Do you know this weather when the condensation trails remain in the sky much longer than usual? That's the typical weather for a halo - not really cloudy in a classical sense, but like a thin silk veil in the high atmosphere.
Anyway, I wish you luck for your "hunt"! :)

Ich verstehen, dankesehr.  I can only remember seeing the trails from planes about twice ever.  David is outside for many hours a day and he says those times are really, really rare.  It looks like a job for when I go on holidays LOL

Well, this was the first halo I ever saw. :) I knew about halos before, but didn't know how to find them. But this one was so striking that it was absolutely impossible not to see it. I turned back home on my way to work to fetch my camera.

Wow, sowas hab ich noch nie live erleben dürfen... Wie passiert sowas?

Vineyard86 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Das entsteht durch prismenförmige Eiskristalle mit sechseckigem Querschnitt. Wenn Wolken in großer Höhe entstehen, wachsen die Eiskristalle (anaolog zu den Schneeflocken) so und wirken dann auf dan Sonnenlicht wie ein Prisma. Je nach Länge und Dicke der Kristalle richten sie sich dann entweder flach wie Scheiben oder länglich wie Stäbchen aus und brechen dann rechts und links bzw. oberhalb (und ggf. unterhalb) der Sonne das Licht ins Auge. Das nennt man dann "Nebensonne". Eine detaillierte Beschreibung findet sich auch in diesem [link].

Mit ein bisschen Übung findet man so etwas sehr oft. Gestern und vorgestern habe ich mehrere Stunden lang ein Halo gesehen. Manchmal sind nur die Nebensonnen zu sehen, manchmal nur der obere Bogen, oder der meist schwächere Ring.

Häufig ist ein Halo ein Anzeichen, dass es in 1 - 2 Tagen Regen gibt. Viel Spaß und Erfolg bei der Suche!

Danke für die ausführliche Erklärung, jetzt weiß ich zumindest, nach was ich Ausschau halten muss. Vielleicht mache ich mich mal am Wochenende auf die "Jagt" ;)

Vineyard86 Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
Ich habe den folgenden Trick zum Suchen: Wenn ich den Arm ausstrecke, die Finger maximal spreize und die Daumenkuppe vor die Sonne halte, ist die Nebensonne - wenn sie da ist - etwa am kleinen Finger. Da die Körperproportionen - wie wir spätestens seit Leonardo wissen - bei allen ähnlich sind, könnte es auch bei Dir klappen. Probier's mal aus.

Halos sind deutlich häufiger zu beobachten als Regenbögen. Allerdings sind sie oft nicht so stark ausgeprägt (manchmal gibt's z.B. nur auf einer Seite eine Nebensonne), und viele wissen einfach nicht, wonach sie suchen müssen. Viel Glück!

Das hilft mir sicher weiter. Jetzt muss ich nur noch die Daumen drücken, dass es am Wochenende sonnig ist.

It's pretty awesome. It's amazing of what reflections you get like a false sunrise and all. Speaking of hexagonal crystals, hexagons are quite popular in nature. Have you heard of the Giant's Causeway in Ireland? It's literally all hexagonal volcanic rock! Apparently Mammoth, CA has some of this :3

In fact I haven't heard of that before, but I looked at it on wikipedia. It's really stunning. I' like to go there and have a look personally some day.

Indeed hexagonal symmetry is quite numerous in nature.

Yeah, it's really awesome! It's caused by hexagonal ice crystals in the clouds. If you know how to find, you can often see something like this when there are these feathery clouds in the sky. But this one was really striking, and I think it was the most splendid occurence of a halo I've ever seen.
