My daughter was driving me to the airport when I spotted this halo to the left. We were on the highway through Stockholm at 10.30 h.  The "sundogs" we call "bisol´s" and they appear because of ice crystals in the atmosphere reflects the sunlight.
The red in the second pic is a reflection of my little camera.

  3. Magic ... I saw some sun bows here in Florida one time, but only the colored streaks not a perfectly shaped arc like that! Wonderful. What a nice omen for the start of your trip.

    And welcome back!
