On 18 March, nice halo phenomena with complete and bright parhelic circle and Wegener’s anthelic arc were seen in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. The extent of the area where the Wegener was observed is remarkable!
Some of my own photos from Brannenburg, Southern Germany can be seen in an album or as a slide show ( 1 – 2 ). More pictures from other observers in West Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France are linked at spaceweather.com and in the German halo forum ( 3 – 4 ).
