Ice Crystals, Sun Dogs and Apparitions

Sky watchers around the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, witnessed something amazing: A complex network of luminous arcs and rings surrounded the afternoon sun. “I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” says eyewitness Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office. Solar physicist David Hathaway snapped this picture of the display.

Photo: COSMIC MYSTERY: Yesterday, sky watchers around the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, witnessed something amazing: A complex network of luminous arcs and rings surrounded the afternoon sun. “I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” says eyewitness Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office. Solar physicist David Hathaway snapped this picture of the display. The apparition might be connected to hurricane Sandy. The core of the storm swept well north of Alabama, but Sandy’s outer bands did pass over the area, apparently leaving behind a thin haze of ice crystals in cirrus clouds. Sunlight shining through the crystals produced an unusually rich variety of ice halos. “By my count, there are two sun dogs, a 22o halo, a parahelic circle, an upper tangent arc, and a parry arc,” says Chris Brightwell, who also photographed the display. “It was amazing.” (Thanks to C.R. for this one! :^) . . .

Triacontakaitetragon - Lawrence Stoller

Oh yes - Master Stoller does it again!

This biggun started out with a weight of 18kilos before Master Stoller facetted it into the artwork you see here a triacontakaitetragon meaning a 34 sided polygon. 



The work would have been easier had the client asked for a multiple of six sides, as it could have built more easily…
