44 parhelia in Estonia

On 3rd of January it was possible in South-Estonia, Tartu to observe bright halo what was photographed by many people and was later reflected by media. Afterwards I was browsing the news ( 1 ) on ilm.ee and noticed that there might be 44° parhelion in picture taken by Aavo Omann ( 2 ). After closer inspection and browsing other captures it was clear that indeed it was 44° parhelion because there were no signs of 46° lateral arcs and the 22° upper tangent arc was weak.
