KARACHI: Citizens in the metropolis stunned by witnessing a rainbow like Phenomena around the Sun today, turning to social media for answers.
Met experts, when contacted, said sunlight, when interacting with above normal moisture (water droplet) in the atmosphere forms colored ring around the sky, which is called Sun Halo. They said the Sun Halo in Karachi was more visible due to absence of pollution in skies and the availability of water droplets, which worked as prism and reflect the sun rays and make circle around the sun.
Although experts believe the formation of Sun Halo is a sign of arrival of strong disturbance in near future, yet they see little chances of any system hitting Karachi directly.
Experts said the metropolis might be affected by a light disturbance within next 72 hours.
