Personal 22-degree halo

Thought I'd share my very own 22-degree halo from 2014 as seen here in Miramar (Wellington, NZ)

Halos around the sun or moon are caused by high, thin cirrus clouds drifting high above your head. Tiny ice crystals in Earth’s atmosphere create the halos. They do it by refracting and reflecting the light. Lunar halos are signs that storms are nearby.
