Bottlinger's rings from airplane

To help overcome our dearth of haloes, here is another archive picture. It was taken in the morning over Iberian Peninsula in April 1997 by Frank Wächter using a 35mm lens. It shows elliptical haloes around the subsun called Bottlinger's rings.

Frank Wächter wrote as appendix, that the Bottlinger's rings probably originated in disintegrating Cumulonimbus, not at all in diamond dust.

Cordial Greetings
