This is the view in the sky over Santa Ana (and suspect most of Costa Rica) this morning.

I have never seen this before. Googling it, I learned a halo or ring around the sun is a fairly common phenomenon, typically caused when there are very high, very thin clouds, clouds, being so high in the sky, made from ice crystals, refracting and reflecting the light.

I took the photos with my iPhone at 11:05 am from home in Piedades de Santa Ana.

 

Did you see it?
