Ice Crystal Halos

First diamond dust in Finland

First diamond dust in Finland

The winter in Lappland was two weeks late but when it finally arrived last weekend, along came the diamond dust. Decent displays were seen here in Rovaniemi on two nights and one day. In the night time I used a bright lamp to create the halos. The photo here is from the second night showing the anthelic region with diffuse arcs. More photos, including all sky views, will follow some time later when I am done with them.
