Bright 120 deg. Parhelion over The Hague
Sunday, September 2nd 2007
The Hague, The Netherlands
After a cloudy morning, the low clouds broke up and both the sun and higher cirrus clouds became visible.
The appearance of the cirrus was an indication for me, to keep a keen eye on the sky. That policy was worth-while, because a short time later, at about 11.35 C.E.S.T., a part of the Parhelic circle appeared, together with a remarkably bright 120 deg. Parhelion, in NNE-ly direction. Both the parhelic circle and the Parhelion presented a clear brownish-reddish fringe colouring. Immediately, I fetched my mobile-phone-with-camera, and made the picture, accompanying this message.
