circumzenithal arc

This morning's upside down rainbow
or as i just learned, a smile in the sky.
Circumzenithal arc
OK, i tried to make a link with wikipedia, for the explanation of this phenomena,
but i still can't make links, and i'm sure you all know how to find wikipedia anyway.

Now that's a first for me! I'll have to look that one up in my meteorological handbook ...

You will find Robert, it appears having to do with ice crystals , not water. Otherwise i am sure you would have known:)

Hey Jozien ...

I like that smile in the sky. I asked D if he had seen this before and he says yes, it is caused by a very thin high band of cirro stratus cloud and in these circumstances and temperatures, ice crystals catching the sun's light.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world."
Psalm 19:1-4
I thought you would like this one. What a beautiful picture Jozien.
