Spectacular halos over Chemnitz

Today, we discovered spectacular halo rings in the sky above Chemnitz. There were at least four rings visible.  I tried to get them on photo. Halos emerge from light diffracted in ice crystals. These are found in high layers of the atmosphere. It’s just like X-ray powder diffraction from polychromatic rays  🙂
