Sunset Suns
Egypt, on July 9, 2003

The attached photo was captured July 9, 2003, in Egypt at sunset.
Note that the halo around the top part of the Sun is balanced, equal on both sides, and that the vertical flare goes through the middle of the Sun. Yet at 2:30 o'clock and 5 o'clock there is irregularity due to the overlaid presence of the personas, which are truly in the Sun here.
