“Imagine a ray of sunlight that has forgotten it is an inseparable part of the sun and deludes itself into believing it has to fight for survival and create and cling to an identity other than the sun.
Would the death of this delusion not be incredibly liberating?”
Eckhart Tolle

The sun halo is a beautiful optical illusion caused by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere.Β

The two bright spots on both sides of the sun are called sun dogs or phantom suns or (scientifically) parhellia.

      Thank you dear Doda, I didn`t know you were on Twitter. The sight of the sun halo was indeed amazing.
      I hope you are enjoying the spring so far. We`ve had a very nice warm spring weather here and the world is getting green at last. πŸ™‚ ❀

        Yes,I’m on Twitter,but I rarely tweet WP posts.I was enchanted by the spectacular image you shared with us!Its scientific name,Parhelia, is of Greek origin and it is so descriptive for the phenomenon.Glad to hear about your warm spring weather there.Enjoy it πŸ™‚ ❀ xxx

      • Aditix says:

        Now that you mentioned it, it does indeed sound Greek. So many of the words we use today are of Greek origin – it was where our modern civilization started.
        You are lucky to live in a very beautiful and special place dear Doda – fitting for you, my friend. πŸ™‚ ❀
