'Zitkala-Ša, a Yankton Sioux Native American woman who made her mark as a champion of Native American rights and as an accomplished author and musician. She and her husband, Raymond Bonnin, founded the National Council of American Indians in 1926 to advocate for full citizenship rights for Native Americans.'
Sun halos are a type of optical phenomena similar to rainbows but are formed by refracting and reflecting light through polarized ice crystals instead of raindrops. This effect is also called an icebow or gloriole.
When there are cirrostratus clouds in the sky around the sun or the moon, every once in a while there will be one or two colorful circles of light surrounding the sun or the moon. The colors are red on the inside and violet on the outside. Sometimes there will be some colored or white light spots or light arcs.
Due to the complex combination of different types, orientation, movement patterns of the ice crystals and the angle of the sun, there can be many types of halos.
