Pollen Corona - Ontario, Canada
Pollen Corona - Ontario, Canada. Wittnessed by Ray Jones of Belgrade, Montana while on a fishing vacation in June '07. Why a pollen corona? It is (a) likely non circular, (b) comparison with Mie scattering calculations predicts 20-30 micron sized scattering particles - the right size range for many pollens, (c) there are multiple rings characteristic of monosized tree pollen and (d) it was the boreal forest pollen season and yellow powder filmed the lake surface.
