The Lapinjärvi halo display of 10th of April got a sequel in 11th of April! Also today a full parhelic circle was visible with both 120° parhelia!
When this display was at it’s best, the parhelic circle was rather bright and so was also the 120° parhelia, and during the best part of the display, both 120° parhelia were visible at the same time! It was really a magnificent halo display!
Here’s some photos from the display of 11.4.2012
