Iridescence and Aureole

This thin cloud showed weak iridescence all around the edges, as well as the bluish aureole around the sun.

Although the cloud dimmed the sun to a comfortable level eye protection was still needed.

Weak iridescence is visible several degrees from the sun all across the cloud. A glider at top was hoping to pick up a thermal below the cloud.

Never look directly at the sun !   Shield the sun and use proper eye protection against the glare.
