At about 11 o'clock in the morning on August 6, a solar halo (a circle of light around the sun) appeared over the Changsha city proper. The solar halo, also known as a round rainbow, is an atmospheric optical phenomenon formed by refraction of sunlight as it passes through ice crystals in clouds. (Photo/Tian Chao, Hunan Daily)
