Pyramidal halos 7-10-19

Before leaving for work yesterday, I saw some cirrus clouds moving in and in a short time later 18 and 23d halos along 18d plate arcs, and bright upper 23d arc appeared. The display went on for a while and when the sun was high enough, a bright and well-defined lower 23d plate arc formed. The lower 23d plate arc in this display is my best to date.
