Halo Phenomenon

Residents in Alor Setar were left witb a visual treat of a rainbow-like ring circling the sun, known as the halo phenomenon, since Thursday but I saw this a couple of weeks ago on my way to see someone at Menara Haw Par along Jalan Sultan Ismail.
The one in Alor Setar was reported and published in today's NSTP. I saw mine walking from the Dang Wangi LRT and recall that the sun look strange and mentioned it to my friend.
According to the the report or to the Meteorological Department, the occurence was a natural phenomenon, nistly caused by ice crystals in the high cirrostratus clouds which are wispy layers of clouds situated at between 6000 and 18000 metres above the ground.
Interesting stuff. . . Me thinks
