Just now as I was reading The Star on the internet, I saw an article about two phenomena involving the sun, one in the Klang Valley and the other in Johore.
Lots of people who saw the optical phenomenon were surprised and were asking what could it be?
In the Klang Valley, people saw a giant halo circling the sun; which is also known as a Sun Halo.
The sun phenomenon that happened in Johore was even more amazing that some people thought it was a UFO and some thought that it could be a new planet.
Here are some pictures of the both phenomenon ….
The National Space Agency (Angkasa) said that the phenomenon was not something to be alarmed about.
The “rainbow-around-the-sun” effect occurs naturally when light interacts with ice crystals in cirrus clouds in the upper troposphere.
The crystals act like prisms, refracting and reflecting sunlight to produce a rainbow-coloured effect around the sun.
However, the agency advised people not to stare directly into the sun to protect their eyesight.

I’m very happy to discover this website. I wanted to thank you for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every little bit of it and i also have you saved as a favorite to check out new things in your website.
Thanks 🙂 Hope to hear from you again.
This phenomenon could also happen to the moon at night too 🙂
When Kaman read the article then, Kaman didn’t know that it could happen in the day and Kaman wished that Kaman was able to see it. However, when it did happen in Malaysia (in Klang Valley too!), Kaman didn’t get to see it. How frustrating…
Thanks for telling me about it 🙂 Maybe Kaman was so busy that Kaman missed the news 😀 And it was frustrating for me too, actually
