This small circular rainbow or ‘Halo’ is an optical phenomenon known as a ‘Glory’. Identical to a Brocken Spectre (minus a human silhouette in centre), Glories are caused by sunlight interacting off tiny water droplets in mist or clouds which reflect the colours of a rainbow. Rare solar glory rainbows can be observed around mountains or hillsides.
