Good find subby, very cool indeed.

I guess they aren't used to seeing the Sun in Sweden.

In Florida this would cause a 911 call.

Rangnorok is coming!

That's amazing.
When ever I see an extraordinary natural occurrence I often wonder how primitive and superstitious people would interpret it. This seems like it would probably be positive, with maybe a child born at this time to be blessed.

It's clearly the eye of one of our creators peering into this glass bowl we call the world because that is definitely a look that says "what are those psychotic little apes up to now?"

In Texas they'd try to shoot it down, miss and wind up shirtless on the latest edition of Cops being filmed in Florida

Streetlight.

It's a sign! Obviously WW III is about to start. Unless the Beiber is returned to the fires of Mt. Doom...

I doubt that'll help prevent the war but just in case, let's throw Celine Dion in as well

It's not the eye of god, it's just a storm caused by a meteor puncture.

You could use Coldplay to check the temperature.

One does not simply walk into Sweden.

Huh, so the "sky is blue because we live inside the eye of a blue eyed giant" theory from Game of Thrones is real.

Or sacrificed. Whatever.

Reminds me of the old Adventure Thru Inner Space ride at Disneyland.

Odin the One-Eye is watching. Better jump in my Knarr and raid the Saxons.

I have a man crush on Phil Plait

Let's read some church bulletins and find out.

Pretty, but not exactly a gigantic lidless cat's eye, filled with hate, and wreathed with flame.
 
2014-04-28 12:38:38 AM  
Very pretty.

Here in crappy Bako I get to see plenty of 22o halos when the clouds are right.

Well, yeah, this is reality, not some Hobbit-propaganda film.

On the one hand, it could be the eye of Sauron.
On the other hand, it could be the eye of Odin.
On the gripping hand, it could be Moties.

Östersund represent.

Moties? I'm thinking I know your age.

It's not the eye of Sauron.   It's an "amazing" display of atmospheric optics caused by ice crystals.

I had seen one of these last summer without knowing what I was looking at. it's really cool and it comes out on film well

Odin's one good eye.

I don't think they're Canadian though, so that doesn't fit the theme.  The answer we were looking for was Nickleback.  Nickleback.
