Good stuff!

I remember the first time I saw a halo around the moon. I was in college and called my family as soon as I saw it - I was freaking out and thought the world was coming to an end.

Lovely scenes. The Ulloa and Glory may also come under "Brochen Spectre".

I once witnessed the amazing sight of "False Sun", in multiples, maybe 5 or so at Oliphants Camp, Kruger National Park, South African sunrise.
