Mother Nature...at her finest!

At about 10 o'clock this morning, we all started getting messages {via twitter, sms and email} to run outside and look at the sun. I must admit I kinda ignored it...until my Mom phoned me and instructed me to get outside now...you always gotta listen to your Mom right?

Through our 8th floor office windows {hence the dodgy cell phone pics}....this is what we saw...

A perfect rainbow circling the sun. It was incredibly beautiful...I have never seen anything like it...Joburg literally came to a stand still.

Its called a 'Sun Halo' and its got something to do with water vapour and crystals.

Mother Nature never fails to impress, does she!

Incredible huh?

They were interviewing people on the news about it - so funny their responses. One thought it was their 'Judgement Day' and the other thought that God was having a really good day!

Amazing.

I love random awesome sky things like that. I took a blackberry photo the other day of some bizarre cloud formations - (you can see them on my mobile uploads album on FB) where honestly - it looks like several volcanos were throwing up clouds, but it was just random bizarre beauty.

I would actually agree with the person that said that God was having fun. He just does this to make us happy.
