Its caused by rays from the sun, passng through holes in upper cloud layers, and being projected (according to a bystanders point of view) onto lower lying cloud, as illustrated below:



Its a nice effect, though has nothing to do with astronomy - its a meteorlogical phenomena.

Hi Conor,

I'm not sure if you use flickr for storing pictures at all but I noticed there is a group there for atmospheric optics.

www.flickr.com/groups/sundogs_halos_sunp...s_atmosphericoptics/

You might like to sign up and post some of your images there.

Cheers,
~Albert
