  1. wow, is that an actual picture? That is amazing. I took a pic on thursday (I think, I was on hols, so lost track of days), and noticed while lying back on a towel that the sun had an actual rainbow going right around it. Didn't post, as thought it just looks like glare, but it was an actual real rainbow. This crazy world

  2. Yes taken today, what you saw was a solar halo caused by light being reflected through ice particles :)

  4. It's looking into the solar telescope in hydrogen alpha. Literally putting my camera lens against the eyepiece! I could watch the sun for hours, lots of surface activity today it was beautiful.
