Rare Photo of Ice Halos Captured in the Wake of Hurricane Sandy

blacked-out New York City wasn’t the only rare photo op that Hurricane Sandy left in her wake. NASA solar physicist David Hathaway captured the above photo in Huntsville, Alabama two days ago after seeing the strange rings surrounding the afternoon sun.

NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office head Bill Cooke says that he had, “never seen anything quite like it.” Another onlooker, Kyle Winkleman, called it a “once-in-a-decade event.”

Spaceweather writes that the extremely rare apparition was “almost certainly connected to Hurricane Sandy”:

The core of the storm swept well north of Alabama, but Sandy’s outer bands did pass over the area, leaving behind a thin haze of ice crystals in cirrus clouds. Sunlight shining through the crystals produced an unusually rich variety of ice halos.

“By my count, there are two sun dogs, a 22o halo, a parahelic circle, an upper tangent arc, and a parry arc,” says Chris Brightwell, who also photographed the display. “It was amazing.”

We shared some other photographs of “sundogs” last year. You can learn more about the phenomenon, which has the scientific name “parhelion”, over on Wikipedia.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)
.
Will a unique pattern of solar and lunar eclipses in 2014-15 fulfill this prophecy?  A compelling look at God’s apparent use of eclipses as “signs” of the Second Coming, with some additional insights lent by the symbolic meanings ascribed to the Sun and the Moon in Scripture…
.
A thought provoking presentation!

Indications are that Jesus is coming very soon…  Are you ready?
