3-4 ringed glory from Mount Washington, New Hampshire. Jim Salge, observer at the Mount Washington Observatory,was facing west towards Bretton Woods shortly after sunrise on 3rd September 2004. "We observe Brocken spectres regularly from the station, but this morning the fog that usually enshrouds the summit was especially shallow and thin, allowing full sunlight to shine through and create a very bright glory around my shadow."   ©2004 Mount Washington Observatory.
