I had observed 23° upper parhelia already once 6.7.2012, but I had an opportunity to observe this halo form again 28.7.2012 during the Cygnus -summer meeting of Ursa (the National Astronomical Association of Finland) in Naarila, Perniö, Finland. This time there were several observations of this and other pyramide halos too, so this observation has been confirmed by many other observers!
