What an outstanding display of atmospheric optics on Monday, Nov. 9th in northern NJ! The high cirrus clouds around 3pm produced a partial 22° circular halo, a pair of brilliant sundogs, a nearly-full parhelic circle (with slight 120° parhelia), and an awesome circumzenithal arc. I witnessed most of this while driving home from work, and all that was remaining when I was able to grab my camera was the CZA...but it was so full of color, it was the best part!
