OMG ITS A CIRCULAR RAINBOW!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!?!!?!??!



The rainbow appears in other parts of the Bible, as well as in different other traditions which depict it as a direct manifestation of God (a theophany) or as a sign of God's grace. Other meanings associated to the rainbow are peace, hope, new beginnings, a gate to the divine realms, mystery, purity and wholeness of the creation.
From a scientific perspective, a circular rainbow, a halo, is a type of optical phenomenon, forming a circle 22° around the sun. It forms as sunlight is refracted in tiny hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the high layers of the atmosphere. The parhelia circle, which sometimes appears together with the halo, is a white band circling the sky always at the same height above the horizon as the sun. Millions of ice crystals with their vertical faces, each mirroring the sun around the sky, form the circle.
Although science is able to explain very well the mechanisms through which such phenomena appear, the chain of atmospheric events which lead to the alignment of the clouds filled with ice particles with the light of the sun in a perfect configuration remains a profound mystery. Although science tells us how, it cannot tell us why. When trying to explain the phenomenon we forget to explain the most significant of all the facts and this is the perfect synchronization between the human actions and cosmic events.
