Photo Friday – A Meteorology Lesson

Happy Friday, friends! In the interest of trying something new, every Friday I’m going to find an existing photo that I haven’t blogged yet or take a new photo at some point during the week, and post it with or without a couple of sentences. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m a motormouth, (my official nickname as a child), so I’m sure I’ll always post at least a few words along with the image.

So for today’s Photo Friday, a photo from Grand Cayman that I didn’t end up blogging – this circular rainbow we saw one afternoon. I probably damaged my eyeballs to some degree while taking this picture, but I’ve never seen a rainbow like that and wanted to make sure I captured it. Whoa, even more intense than a double rainbow, right?

Update 5/18 – I just learned this is called a 22-degree halo! The halo is formed when light from the sun or moon is refracted by ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds. Pretty cool!
