‘Rainbow’ halos light up Brazilian skies following staggering celestial event (VIDEO)
The 22-degree-halos, known as solar and lunar halos respectively, occur around both the sun and moon. The extraordinary phenomenon happens when light interacts with thousands of ice crystals trapped in cirrus clouds in the troposphere, about 5-10 km (3-6 miles) above us.
The resulting interplay has a captivating effect, creating a colorful circular formation that looks similar to a rainbow. Footage from Observadores Ovni Brasil, a “national network for recording UFO sightings and extraordinary phenomena” shows the stunning display in all its glory.
