Someone else posted a couple of pictures on here that they took in Oakland (different angle?). In one of the pictures you can see the faint outline of a second ring. I was pointing the camera straight up at the sun and really couldn't see what I was doing so I was pleased the picture came out so well.

WOW! Best halo photo I've ever seen, and I've been following atmospheric phenomena for a lot of years. I've never seen the faint inner rings before.
