I went to see my family in my home place in Ulvila, Finland for easter time. During the Maundy Thorsday I travelled with a bus from Turku to Ulvila. In Turku I spotted a 22° halo in the sky. While sitting in the bus, I noticed that also sun dogs and 22° upper tangent arc had appeared in the sky with the 22° halo. I did this observation when the bus was driving somewhere in municipality of Pöytyä, SW Finland. The 22° halo was still in the sky also when I arrived in Ulvila.
