On December 23, 2007 (1:40 – 3:50 pm) Ladislav Nyc observed during his afternoon walk bright halos in diamont dust. When he went up from inversion cloudiness to see sunrays, on the hill of Pansky Vrch a great spectacle came along. Except for frequent halos like pillar, 22° halo, parhelia and upper and lower tangent arcs also subhalos were visible: bright subsun and subparhelia with arms of parhelia. These arms of parhelia, which join subparhelia and parhelia of 22° halo, are the first ones observed in the Czech Republic. More photos ( 1 – 2 – 3 ).
