(WWLP) — In many parts of western Massachusetts on Sunday afternoon, people could see a halo around the sun.

“A halo is a ring or light that forms around the sun or moon as the sun or moon light refracts off ice crystals in cirrus clouds. The halo is usually seen as a bright, white ring although sometimes it can have color,” 22News Storm Team Meteorologist Adam Strzempko said.
