Kyk tog op!!!

Kring on die son

Lynette roep van buite dat ek moet kom kyk! Natuurlik eers toe sy beduie: KYK OP, doen ek so. Die foto is deur ‘n sonbril geneem want ek het al gehoor dat mens nie ‘n kamera lens aan direkte sonlig moet blootstel (?)

Ek wonder toe of dit as gevolg van vog in die lug is, maar behalwe vir ‘n paar wolkies is dit droog en baie warm. Later hoor ons dat dit die vorige dag baie in Antsohihy en omgewing gereën het. Ek skat dis so 300 tot 400km soos die kraai vlieg van hier af. Dankie tog vir die Internet om dit op te soek.

Sometimes you look up on a clear day or night and see a huge circle of light around the sun or moon. This ring or circle is called a halo by scientists.  Solar and lunar haloes are pretty common, but they’re so mysterious-looking that people often express amazement upon seeing them.

Notice in these photos that the sky looks fairly clear. After all, you can see the sun. And yet halos are a sign of high thin cirrus clouds drifting 20,000 feet or more above our heads.

These clouds contain millions of tiny ice crystals. The halos you see are caused by both refraction, or splitting of light, and also by reflection, or glints of light from these ice crystals. The crystals have to be oriented and positioned just so with respect to your eye, in order for the halo to appear.

Hoeveel van sulke wonder verskynsels gaan nie by ons verby omdat ons nooit opkyk nie? Hoeveel van God se skepping mis ons? En meer nog, hoeveel van God se skepsels kruis ons pad wat ons nooit raaksien omdat ons oë binne toe kyk?

Here, wees ons genadig asseblief!!
