I’ve never seen anything like this.
Through the lens of the camera,
I saw it, squinting
As the bright rays of the sun
shot straight at my face.
I continued regardless, squinting
Someone had called my son
They had all seen the rare find
How did they know it was there?
Something so camouflaged that can be seen
only when a photograph is taken.
Everybody saw it
Interestingly they all took photographs of it.
Mine was a struggle as I was seeking perfection
A full circle
I had to take many shots of it.
So many questions were asked
I shared it with friends and was truly excited
I was hoping I would receive answers
Perhaps someone would figure out what this is.
Some called it an eclipse others said it was a halo.
The beautiful multi-coloured ring around the sun
Was just enchanting.
The struggle to capture it was worth all the effort
The claim is that it was caused by thin clouds
Tiny crystals in the Earth’s atmosphere creates this
I am left with more questions than I started with
When will this appear again?
How will we know it is there?
Veiled by the cloud but caused by them
The clouds formed the halo as
Particles of tiny ice crystals
Swept across the sun
The two Rs caused this;
Reflection and Refraction
Another Science lesson to be had.
