"A beautiful flash of light got Magnus Edbäck in Borlänge, sweden, to run for the camera. It turned out to be a spectacular halo with components that have never before been photographed. Now he can have the discovery named after him."
"When Magnus Edbäck was the home of their parents in order to eat lunch, noted his mother, the beautiful light outdoors. Magnus, who is fotointresserad, ran straight home and downloaded the camera."
"– I saw that this was something out of the ordinary and was afraid that it would disappear quickly, he says to TT."
"On a Swedish astronomiforum he was prompted to send the image to the international experts for the assessment and the Finnish halo-expert Marko Riikonen identified then the elements in the halon that have never before been photographed."
"the Components were detected when the image is tampered with the increased contrast, and a day later confirmed the French halo-theorist Nicolas Lefadeux to halokomponenten is new. Previously it has only been seen in computer simulations."
"– In the circuit for those who are interested in it here it is really exciting and fun, " says Weine Josefsson, klimatolog at the Swedish meteorological institute."
"According to him, it is relatively common, with haloes in Sweden. They appear when the many crystals of the same shape and size of the breaks the light of the sun and it is between 100 and 200 days per year."
"Could be named after Magnus"
"But that so many haloes are visible at the same time, that the Magnus Edbäcks image, is unusual. And to discover the brand new components is even rarer."
"it– It's very rare to do it at all," says Weine Josefsson."
"Now, the components can be named after Magnus."
"– It feels incredibly awesome. It is hard to grasp, if it now becomes so. But it feels great that it may spread and can contribute to science like this, " says Magnus Edbäck."
"Halo is called the optical phenomenon in the form of coloured or non-coloured rings, arcs, pillars or bright spots around the sun and the moon."
"They are caused by light refraction and reflection in ice crystals floating in the atmosphere."
"the Phenomena appear relatively often in the sky, many times in connection with the frontsystem, and catchment zones that are approaching."
"In the winter can haloes occur closer to the ground, in connection with the frostdimma or dis. They can also occur around other light sources than the sun and the moon, for example, the streetlights."
