Stunning natural phenomenon appears to show three separate suns shining in sky
This stunning natural phenomenon appears to show three separate suns shining in the sky.
Appearing above the southern Russian city of Orsk, the freezing atmosphere meant the morning Sun created a gorgeous halo.
Spreading across the bright blue sky, instead of creating one continuous ring, the light appears to dot in three different locations.
Captured by Ilya Logachev on November 28, the optical phenomenon norm ally happens in frozen air when the humidity is high, which creates tiny ice crystals.
Ilya said: “It was beautiful to see such a strange phenomenon and capture it so clearly.
“What made it even more unusual was that the temperature wasn’t as low as it normally is.
“It was only about -5celsius.
“For the halo to not even be a continues ring but instead separate into three different suns was very special.”
