ice halos and other optics

Old photos of halos from anthelic and subanthelic region

Alan Clark sent these scans of his old slides. The anthelic arcs in the first two photos were photographed in 1980 in Canada, while the two latter images with subparhelic circle, subanthelion and possible faint arcs upwards from the subanthelion were photographed in 1978 on a flight across the US, en route to NASA Ames. Halos suffer markedly when scanned from slides but it is always nice to see any documents of these rare halos.
