      Ruth ended Volume IV for optical phenomena with the hundredth bottle of beer on the wall.

      No more bottles of beer on the wall, no more bottles of beer.
      Go to the store and buy some more, 99 bottles of beer on the wall…

      So here’s some more in Volume V.

      But first check one of the last bottles in Volume IV by Keelin with a great corona. Great you posted this one with all of its marvelous colors Keelin.

      And Ruth I love your latest on the gallery with a rainbow after a storm over Wolf Creek, Montana, US.

      I still wait for new halos where I live. They seem to have become rare for some reason. But a dive in my archive helps. Here is a small segment of a bright 22 degrees halo to start Volume V with.

      And Hans, what a fantastic iridescent undulatus photo you’ve captured (featured on gallery). It is pure magic!

      I have not visited this thread in a while and  I see some incredible shots, Keelin, Ruth, Hans! Those “ripples”, Ruth, are CAS calendar material, I hope Gavin notices them.

      I wanted to share a couple of short videos I made with the intention of capturing the stars, the moon, planets at night. Serendipitously, I also caught some optical effects. Here is the first one. Best watched on a big screen with sound on.

      I wanted to see if the Milky Way was visible in this dark place, but the moon, even at 35% was too bright. Instead I was treated with a “moon dog” (a parselene), rather diffuse, but clearly visible, and a moon pillar as the moon set. Not to mention some great cloud movements caught with a second camera with a very wide angle lens.

      And this is the second one:

      Jupiter and Saturn flank the moon and together they glide to the west. Venus is shortly visible by the flag pole. Some stars of the teapot asterism are also noticeable. Serendipitous high clouds generated a rare brightly colored “moon dog” or parselene and a nice partial corona.

      I agree with George about your corona in Big Ripples Ruth. Also great Big Craters In The Sky with delicate iridescence.

      Thanks Keelin about the gallery one. Maybe you noticed I used a part of it on the B&W thread some weeks ago. The details surprised me on that one. The corona in Iridescent Chameleon is fantastic Keelin. I love its texture and the clear colors. Also great Solo Solar View with halo.

      Thanks for sharing your videos George. They revealed really bright moondogs and a great corona as well.

      Hans, yes! I do remember well the fine detail in the photo you posted to the B&W topic a few weeks back. And a fine, colorful fox, you have there! Is he up to any mischief? Thank you, too, for kind comments on my recent postings above.

      This one looks as if little tree branches poked the sun and some color leaked out.

      Lovely photos from everyone!! I just went through and looked at all of them and I must say that they are all a treat to the eyes. Here are a couple of photos from a plane that I took several months back. I think they show a 22-degree halo, a sundog, and part of a parhelic circle. I also was blessed to see a subsun and a light pillar, I think it’s called. It’s where there appears to be a little dimmer sun underneath the actual sun. Sadly I did not get to capture it :( Anyways here they are!

      I love this moon picture, Ruth. Beautiful framing and colors.

      Night sky pictures is one think I really enjoy doing. A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Arizona to shoot the lunar eclipse. I’d like to share the video I made from the shots:

      vimeo.com/651839472

      That was on a full moon to, but it entered the Earth shadow, so its brightness was greatly reduced. The result was that one could see all the stars as on a new moon night while also seeing the “blood” moon. Beautiful experience.

      And Ruth, your Shades Of White remind me of a trip to the point store where there are rows of delicately hued “whites”. You, too, have a well-trained eye!

      Since we’re on to subtleties, here’s one that might fit well as there is but a hint of color in the corona.

      I am still waiting for some halo phenomena over here. They seem to hide for me for a long time, but then I caught some  iridescence in a short lived layer of cirrocumulus.

      Ruth, I love your moon shots and really appreciate your being awake at 3:30AM(!) to take that glowing shot with the tree branches. The image reminds me of the old film style of closing down the audience’s view to a small peephole before expanding again to reveal a change of scene. I’d like to see the rest of that movie.

      And Hans, Just A Moment is a beautiful, warm shawl I’d like to wrap up in. No matter the fringe seems to be a bit loose.

      Yes, this thread is all about sharing our radiant beauties. Great title, Keelin. It is a beauty indeed and I think you spotted a bright lower segment of the 22 degrees halo. The sun must be above at the right. Is that correct?

      I have waited a long time for a halo over here, but this one was the  waiting more than worthwile. I spotted a 22 degrees halo with upper tangent arc and above it what most probably is a supralteral arc. I post three versions of the image. One without enhancements, one with enhancements that make the halos more evident and the last one with b-r subtraction in which they show even more clearly.

      Dropping by again to comment on Hygge’s post, but let me tell you, those iridescence and corona pictures that I see when I go back are killing me, I love them to death. How do you manage to get them?

      Now back to the sycamore tree picture. That is Owen Hymphreys’ shot. Incredible shot. He is in that zone far enough north where the occasional aurora is distant so you mainly see the high part, which tends to be red. He has others, as well as sunsets, sunrises. They are mixed in with his regular jobs pictures:

      And it must have turned up the pareidolia knob for me as your next post took on the look of an iridescent growling dog. A guardian perhaps? Could be there’s another one just behind the trees here… IMG_2063_I See You!I See You!

      And yes, it is seeing us Keelin. Nice colorful halo and corona behind the contrasting trees.  I love also your former lenticular touch of iridescence.

      Here is another dog – and not a sundog – with a faint segment of 22 degrees halo.

      Keelin, now that is an exciting piece.  Your own special rays breaking way to a new day.

      Thank you, Ruth! You caught some beautiful iridescence above, and I always love your moon shots. In your latest, my mind can’t help but see a bright (one-)eyed cloud fellow offering a friendly greeting. Your timing couldn’t have been better.

      Keelin, the halo’s rule this spring.  Nice Halo on the gallery yesterday for you.  Not sure why but more halo’s observed this year for me.

      Wow, some great halos by you two, Ruth and Keelin. And Keelin also a great one on the gallery. In envy you, because for some reason they seem to hide for me lately. But a sundog can’t pass without being noticed.

      Thanks, you two! Ian let me know they’d posted my halo photo on the Gallery, but I’ve yet to figure out how to navigate that part of the site since it’s been reconfigured. Any advice on how to view just the most recently added photos without applying the category filters?

      Hans, I hope that more than the dogs will come out to play with you soon! And Ruth, you are catching these halos despite interference. ;)

      Keelin,  to find your halo from May 30th, stay on the gallery sight but go down to where you see ” show more”.  Keep hitting that button and you should see your lovely ring.  By the way your last picture has the feeling of big space.

      Gregory, you can’t hide your rainbow from us spotters.  Exciting photo you shared.

      I now understand it is a golden sand-path to the pot of gold Gregory. Ruth and Keelin, you spotted some very bright halos. Elsewhere the halo is waiting for a sundog to come and play. For me it is the other way around.

      Halos over here seem to have gone to the dogs.

      Gregory, you are well on your way to catching your rainbow. That is a beautiful photo.

      Ruth, I like your High Wire act. And thanks for help with Gallery navigation. I see a few newer gems from you there. Always a treat to find them shared with so many cloud lovers!

      And Hans, the halos may be hiding lately, but of course the dogs come to your friendly call. ;)

        Ruth,

        A little photography trick is done to capture the colours that are often washed out.  If your camera has a sunset setting then switch to that and see what you get, it should make the colours more vivid.

      Ruth, it looks like you were lucky to catch that wild animal with rainbow-hued mane dash out from behind the trees. Right on time, I’d say!

      How do you like your masked potatoes served?
