Photographer Left Stunned When ‘Angel In The Sky’ Appears While On A Hike

This is undeniably magical & beautiful!

A Photographer has captured a magical scene featuring a phenomenon that appears to create an ‘Angel in the Sky.’

Hiking through the United Kingdom this month, Lee Howdle encountered a broken specter in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, central England.

Occurring when an observer stands on an elevated area reaching above the upper surface of a cloud with the sun at their back, Howdle revealed his shadow looked huge and interestingly was in a circular rainbow.

With light reflecting in the back of their shadows and forming a circular glory of colors around dark figures that might appear enormous, the photographer said he also looked ‘a mile long.’

Standing on Mam Tor, a 1696-foot hill in the High Peak area of the National Park, Howdle captured the striking scene using his acquired Canon 5d Mk4 Camera.

‘I took some pictures and carried it while walking. It appeared like an angel in the sky. It was magical, I have never seen this before. I have read about it once on the internet. It’s really amazing and I feel so blessed to have captured the magical moment.’ Howdle told SWNS.

Fortunately, another photographer was able to capture different weather events that equally produced a similar angelic exhibition.

Skiing down the Hornligrat Mountain in the Swiss Alps, Photographer Michael Schneider using his iPhone 11 captured the moment ice crystals froze midair, producing a Halo around the sun.

The Phenomenon, which is usually known as a 22o halo occurs when lights relate with the ice crystals postponed in the atmosphere.

‘The crystals can be very high in cirrus clouds, or closer to the ground as diamond dust or ice fog. And like the raindrops scattering light into rainbows, the crystals of ice can reflect and refract light and in turn act as prisms or mirrors, largely dependent on the shape of the crystal as well as on the incident angle of the light.’ Geophysicist Mike McKinnon told Fox News.

Captured in November 2019 around 11 a.m. on the Hornligrat Mountain, Schneider said on his blog: ‘The sun had been struggling through the last snow clouds for almost an hour. The temperature was around 7 degree and I was waiting up for my colleagues with whom I had planned to go skiing. I used that time to capture the beautiful lighting moods using my smartphone.’
