Is this is a supernatural phenomenon?

Many people were surprised to see such a sight around the sun, whether it was a supernatural event. So let me tell you that this is not a supernatural phenomenon. Sun Halo is an astronomical phenomenon of an ideal ring with the Sun in the center. Which is a common thing. This is a very common occurrence in cold countries. But this is a rare occurrence in our countries, which is seen occasionally in the year. It cannot be predicted. It occurs when there are cirrus clouds filled with moisture in the sky near or around the sun and is a local phenomenon. That is why they appear in one area only.

The Sun Halo is also made in Moon Light?

It is not necessary that Sun Halo is made only in the light of the sun. At times, the moon light is also formed in the night. The process is the same, when the light of the sun or the moon collides with the humidity of the sky and collides with the 22 degree angle of the earth, then this condition is formed. It is also known as Moon Ring or Winter Hallow. It occurs when the rays of the sun or moon are deflected through the hexagonal ice crystals present in the clouds of cirrus.
