Colourful sun 'halo' lights up sky over eastern India

This stunning natural phenomenon shows a "halo" shining in the sky. Appearing above the eastern Indian city of Imphal, a "halo" appears when cirrus clouds pass in front of the sun on a clear day. Captured by Irom Anand on Friday (June 19), the optical phenomenon normally happens when clouds are very high in the sky and creates ice-crystals, which reflect the sunlight, causing a circular rainbow.
