    Forest Glade Corona

Look for coronas in the morning mists of woods and forests.  Their water droplets are often uniformly sized to produce corona rings and the trees help mask the bright sun.

This colourful example was seen in California by Randolph Wang of Princeton. The upper yellow and red are the outer edge of the aureole. The greens and blues of the first ring show up vividly against the dark foliage and branches.
