Days after Christmas, a rare circumhorizontal arc formed over Wellington, on New Zealand’s North Island.
The rare sight occurs when ice crystals develop high in the sky.
A halo forms when sunlight enters the horizontally-oriented crystals.
They can only be seen when the light source, either the sun or moon, sits at more than 58 degrees.
Luckily this circumhorizontal arc was immortalised by some eagle-eyed residents.
