    i see them quite often and point them out to my kids... albeit not so tight.... but that might be his lens..
    i DO like this though LOL...."Chris used a special UV filter to safely capture the image. “You should never point a camera directly at the sun,” he stressed. "

    dunno about a UV protecting but a polarizer would of been better...

    Can't say I've seen a full circle sun halo like that before, but I've seen plenty of sun dogs. I often see the mini rainbows 22 degrees either side of the sun which, I guess, would form part of this larger halo if completed?

    I've also seen a halo round the moon on clear, icy nights... and some on foggy nights (fog bows!)

    Seen quite a few of these - so often in fact that I tend to ignore them when I see them. Most recent one I saw was a couple of months ago, that time whilst on holiday in Arizona.
