A Cloud Smile

The most beautiful of halos, officially known as a circumzenithal arc, is created by tiny ice crystals. It is sometimes known as a ‘cloud smile’, and rightly so, it can’t fail to bring joy to any cloudspotter. The delightful example shown here was spotted over Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK.
