During the Holy Saturday, the sky was clear and the weather was absolutely beatuful! But that also meant, that there weren’t any halo visible in the sky. But that changed during the First Easter day, when 22° halo appeared in the sky! Later in the evening, also upper 22° tangent arc, sun pillar and sun dogs joined in the sky with the 22° halo, that actually had already got a little bit fainter.
