Light playing on water drops, dust or ice crystals in the atmosphere
produces a host of visual spectacles - rainbows, halos, glories, coronas
and many more. Some can be seen almost every day or so, some are once in
a lifetime sights. Find out where to see them and how they form. Then
seek and enjoy them outdoors.

Does the sudden appearance of a Firefox crop circle imply which browser
extraterrestrials prefer? We don't know, but it was still fun to make!
