22 degrees[edit]

Could a knowledgeable person improve the caption of the diagram to explain the beam of light is being bent by 22 degrees? It took me a couple of readings to deduce why the phenomenon is called "22 degrees". Tempshill (talk) 06:56, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

The result of this discussion was to MERGE Allecher (talk) 23:04, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

This is a procedural proposal on behalf of Punkdigerati, who left a comment at Talk:Moon ring stating that he believes that Moon ring duplicates 22° halo, but did not know the guidelines on merging. I personally believe that Moon ring could be merged into this article. Chris the Paleontologist (talkcontribs) 17:45, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Silence is golden, no objections after a month, go for it, I beg of you. Rgrds. -- (talk) 07:18, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Months later and the proposal has not been closed. Since there appears to be no controversy I will close it and merge the pages, redirecting the term Moon Ring to the 22° halo article.

visible on as many as 100 days per year[edit]

The sentence "A 22° halo may be visible on as many as 100 days per year—much more frequently than rainbows" is very vague. Where is it visible 100 days a year? Some locations are almost always too cloudy while others are almost always completely clear. In some locations rainbows are visible all the time during day, such as next to waterfalls with clear skies, and I assume that some locations have rain formed rainbows more frequently than halos.

Perhaps a link to this page is in order? EDIT: Or this one? Drabkikker (talk) 13:27, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

lead photo represents different phenomenon with its own wiki page[edit]

The leading photo at the top of this article appears to represent the rarer 46° halo rather than the 22°. Propose moving it to the 46° article and replacing it here with a more relevant illustration. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wchardy (talkcontribs) 16:42, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
