Archdeacon caught was once seeing halos shaped in moonlight. Their daylight hours opposite numbers are strangely universal, not just within the arctic yet in temperate climates to boot. Many halos are attainable, forming arcs of coloured or white mild virtually wherever within the sky. Their occasional brilliance, sort, and unique shapes have inspired skywatchers for centuries.

This ebook introduces halos and attempts to show a few of their attractiveness. It tells a lot of what's identified approximately them: how they come up, how such a lot of are attainable, and why a few are infrequent, whereas others take place each few days or so. No such insights, after all, are useful for the joy of a halo show; certainly, an complex demonstrate is one in every of Nature's wonders. however, realizing can upload to leisure, specially because the makings of an exceptional exhibit change into as notable because the show itself.
