One of the most interesting events was a fine view of the 22 degree halo and the circumzenithal arc at the Stellafane Convention in Springfield, Vermont. No one else was nearby and although it lasted at least 15 minutes, I never ran into anyone else who saw it that day (I do have a photo of it by the way).

 

I've fallen far behind in posting photos in this thread but here's a shot that I took at Stellafane on August 10th.

Hi all,

OK, I give up. I keep trying to paste an image into my reply and it never works. What file format am I supposed to use? There's nothing that I can find under Help that tells me. What's the secret to adding an image.

Below is a photo taken at Stellafane on August 10, 2018 around 6 p.m. showing the circumzenithal arc in upper portion, 22 degree halo below center, and the sun at the bottom. The cirrus clouds kept on thickening and these features faded out soon after I took the photo. Thanks for the tip on how to post photos.

Here are some shots I took of some interesting cloud formations while I was duck hunting last September.   This is looking south, about 6 miles south from the lake I was on is lake Michigan.

Last night our Astronomy Club scheduled an action for the public : ''Your phone ,our telescope,come and take pics of the Moon''.

 

https://astroclubgal...evenimente.html

 

The weather was not fit due to clouds,so the action was postponed.

However,from home ,I saw with the naked eyes a Moon Corona.

Through the Hapo 3.6x40mm Galilean binocular the image was downright beautiful !

Jupiter was also visible with the naked eyes and not much more.

Through binocular ,Epsilon Lyr was seen as a double star ,like Alcor-Mizar and Nu Dra.

Here is an iPhone pic from 11-26-19 showing both the Tangential Arc (closer to the Sun and brighter) and the dimmer but more colorful Circumzenithal Arc at the top. The two Parhelic Arcs ("sun dogs") were beautifully bright and vividly colored but the camera field did not include :( .
