   Supralateral arc I 



Part of the complex display over Northern & Central England 9th February 2001. Photographed at Sheffield by Malcolm Garland ~1300 UT when the sun was 22° high. The horizontal column crystals which formed the supralateral arc also produced an intense upper tangent arc. The weakness of the 22° halo compared with the upper tangent arc indicates that the outer halo was a supralateral arc rather than a 46° halo. The background is a HaloSim3 simulation.
