Explaination: A halo is a ring of light surrounding the Sun or moon. Most halos appear as bright white rings but in some instances, the dispersion of light as it passes through ice crystals can cause a halo to have some color. Halos form when light from the Sun or moon is refracted by columnar ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds (like cirrus or cirrostratus clouds). [More]

MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER
I stumbled upon your astronomy website by accident (thru an email
forwarded to me) and I thought you might like to see a picture of the
sun I took a few days ago. It was an amazing sight, many people saw it,
people in Bandar might have missed it because of overcast sky. I dont
know the scientific explanation for the phenomenon, but most people
said it signified the death of a Wali of important person, and Allah
lessened the strength of the sun’s rays by covering it with a gray disc.
