Description:

Today 26-04-08 in Almada, the neighboring city of Lisbon, only separate for the Tagus river, i could watch a gret atmospheric effect as known by "Ice Halo".That is an atmospheric optical phenomenon mostly associated with the refraction of sunlight by small ice crystals making up cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. In the image we can see the portuguese Christ King silhouette, seemed to that it exists in Brazil( i use is right arm to blocking part of the sun light) and below in the image we can see part of the "Ice Halo" effect
