Second halo around the sun

Double Halo Around the Sun Today

There was a second, more faint halo further out from the first one today. It was way too big for me to get even HALF of it in frame on my dinky camera but I did manage to capture a section of it. There was also a Lower Tangent Arc for awhile. We don't usually see halos this vivid in this area!

I found out that the vivid halo is called a 22° Halo and the other larger faint one is called a 46° Halo.
