Reflected cloud rays, I guess. If, so special, because from this very same point I have already made the very same "rare" observation several times. In the Saimaa archipelago, there is enough water for reflections.

Evening halos; both side suns and a length of 22 ast. ring, the top side might be included too !?

I noticed an anvil cloud and started to follow its development. From the top left, a bulge began to peek and the memory of seeing a similar peak was only seen in the observations of the Sky Watcher. The end result was thunder, but I only noticed two flashes and finally we got a little rain here too. After the second flash I noticed, there was even an exceptionally loud "explosion" and the sound was really frightening because it came somehow quite unexpectedly and from the exact opposite direction. Otherwise, pretty basic rumble. The temperature was at least +28 to +30, still around 28. Again s...

Could this be a rarer cloud arc, or is the arc a more common nebula? I haven't seen either before and it's hard to tell - even though I tried to study :)

Side sun from Tikkurila.

Now I need help with interpretation. The side sun more atypically "off" the 22-degree ring? and 22 degrees upside down?

Ruskosäteet

Kati Summanen, Ursa (Helsinki)

Now I don't know what I saw. Some long ray first on the side of the Sun, a brown ray based on time, would hit. Around the same time, I noticed a peculiar red-yellow area in the south with something “saw blade,” just like rays. So it was clearly not on the other side of the Sun, so I don't think there were any counter-rays?
