Halo around the sun  

Halo around the sun

What do you call a rainbow formed by ice? An icebow, of course. Others call the phenomenon a halo, and we"ll admit it does have a mystical aura. Halos can occur when ice crystals suspended in the air refract light into a colorful ring around the bright sun. That"s what"s happening in the cold atmosphere here in the Ore Mountains along the Czech-German border. It"s a perfect complement to the snow angels you"re yearning to make in this pristine blanket of white.
