The second phenomenon I saw was something more unusual to me. I had gone outside Friday morning to water the potted plant on the sidewalk when I heard a jetliner go overhead. As I looked up to see if I could spot the jet, I noticed iridescence in the clouds. They would have been too close to the sun for me to see except that the roof was shielding the sun from view. I dashed inside and got my camera. I believe this it the meteorological phenomenon called a solar corona.
I love the sights in the June skies.
