Stubby Fogbows

Weak fogbow in shallow fog Obvious fogbow fragment

Small sections of fogbow can easily go unnoticed, merely showing up as a brightening in the fog patch. Sun altitude 6 degrees

This section was more obvious but still only covered a small portion of the arc because the fog just wasn't deep enough.

Distant fogbow fragment

Even less obvious is this fragment in distant fog, about a third of the way across from the left. It was at the correct angle from the antisolar point and confirmed its true nature by appearing to follow my own change of position.
