Sun Halo or Rainbow

My first post about a Sun Halo was in June. And I still remember it well.

Yesterday, after humid hot day, it started to cast over. It smelled and looked as if it would rain soon.
In the end, it didn't.

But while checking the sky for rain in the clouds I saw another Sun Halo - only partial this time. You could call it a rainbow as well. Nonetheless, as impressive as the first one.

Yes, I did go and grab my camera to capture this moment.

Here the original:



And now a slightly enhanced photo for the better visibility of the rainbow:


And yes, it was only visible from a certain angle in front of my house for about ten minutes. Then it was gone.
