i've never seen one yet, but i think jon's talking about this => http://www.allthesky.com/atmosphere/preview/halocrystals-p.jpg

one of nature's surpises i didn't experience yet...

On the other hand, i'm glad to know that even when you're in such a place you can still enjoy nature's finest tricks...

I don't think that I have seen one either, and will go onto the website for info. that the previous writer has given.
There are times when I stand and am amazed at the colours around the sun in the early evening. Colours of bright, red, orange and pink that are so vibrant. This is usually in the direction of a house at the back of where we live, and wonder if they think I am staring at them! As the previous writer said it is good that you can see such visions of nature from your temporary abode!

Jon, don't think you are getting all delerious about the sky just because you're confined. I have gotten so much pleasure, healing and wonder from Arizona skies - just be looking up once in a while.

I've seen those halos a couple of times - they are pretty amazing. Once I saw something called a "green flash." They occur just before sunset. You see an intense emerald colored light just as the sun sets. I saw one once while traveling in a car. I was sitting in the back seat as we were going over a mountain pass. I looked out the side window and there it was - no one else in the car noticed because they were staring ahead at the road.

Keep looking up whenever you can. The sky is still yours, and you're seeing what the rest of us see.

the wonders of nature are there, free, for us all to enjoy. I've travelled in Arizona and the skies are a wonderful sight, from shades of deep purple to pink, with gold tinged clouds and blood red sunsets.

Sounds to me like you've been tripping on acid again! Bad Shaun, naughty!
