Several times a year we see a circumhorizontal arc high up in the wispy clouds. These occur when the sun’s rays pass through flat, hexagonal-shaped ice crystals at a specific angle, causing the rays to bend, like in a prism, and light up the clouds with beautiful colors. This one only lasted for a brief time, but was a joy to see.
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~W. B. Yeats
