  3. Very cool. The first time I ever saw one of those in the sky my reaction was a confused/panicked "OH GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING??!!!" Thank goodness for google.

  4. Bill-- Thank you. I love when we get to see these optics!

    Arkansas Patti-- It's such a treat to look up and see these sights.

    Francine-- I love knowing that you've seen an atmospheric corona around the sun too. We've been seeing them quite often lately, and not sure if it's unusual or if we just hadn't noticed them before.

    Scott- Thank you.

  7. NCmountainwoman-- I'm not sure what makes this corona occur, and it is really is a lovely occurrence.

    Mark P-- There's a corona happening as I type this. I am surprised by the frequency. Makes me wonder if it's ice particles or dust in the atmosphere. Wish I knew. I hope you get to see a corona there.

  8. 'Scuse me while I kiss the sky.

    Recently I was sitting inside talking on the telephone and looking out at the sky and was so happy to see some impressive iridescence. Again, thank you for bringing the sky to our attention with your beautiful photos.

  10. I'm so used to seeing you on fb I don't usually check out your blog page except when you post something about it. I love the picture under the "just taking a good long look around". It's gorgeous. I'll re-bookmark this page.

  11. jsk-- I stopped posting links to the blog on Facebook because the link algorithm there is broken. It won't let me choose a pic. So we just post here and hope our friends will stop by to take a look. Glad you liked that iridescent reflection pic up top. It was a beautiful moment.

  13. Pat-- I love the interaction of light and water droplets in the atmosphere. It is endlessly beautiful and fascinating. I'm so glad you're looking up more often. The best part of the internet is sharing the beauty!
