A horrendously quiet April passed by without any noteworthy action (except Jarmo's fantastic bolide halo). Halo people were awakened from oblivion on 5th May, when a smooth cirrostratus veil crept in from west and offered plate crystals and odd radii halos. The display was seen and photographed by Ismo Luukkonen in Turku, Marko Riikonen in Helsinki (photo on the right by Marko) and Jukka Ruoskanen in Riihimäki.
Most likely all odd radius halos were on the sky, of which 9, 18, 20 and 35 degree halos were easily discernible. The 22-24 region may have consisted of all three possible rings. Also few of the odd radius plate arcs were present, although rather poorly.
