Looks like this would be a question for Dr. Masters

Never seen this particular pattern of arcs as well as sundogs, Charlotte! Sounds like you know a lot more about these phenomena than I do!

I just followed Eileen's link, but your photography, Charlotte, is much better than their examples.
I think your question about the bend is still out there.

Here's a link to a site that shows all kinds of arcs and tangents and such...maybe you can figure out what you've witnessed by perusing this site:

Scroll down all the different types to see which fits your sighting.

thanks Elaine.
The other thing I am wondering about is that I thought the sundog arc's (if complete to make a second halo) would have the same angle as the inner halo.

thanks Sharon, Rodney & Elaine.
Does anyone know the name of that intersecting arc because I don't think I am right on my info. The pics of tangent arcs I can find on the internet all bend back the other way from the halo. This one has the same arc bend.

It is not a double halo (like part of the sundogs) because the distance between them is not uniform.
This intersecting arc is on the right side. The one in "Strange Sight" is on the left side.


lol Rodney. I didn't have time to make it pretty. It didn't last long and I had a feeling that if I took too long I would miss it.

I think the intersecting arc is an upper tangent arc.
