My first obervation was that the conditions were interesting but it was still too cloudy. Loads of crystals in the air though.
My second observation was that possibly an elliptical halo manifested itself as an elliptical glow around the sun (the first three images).
A bit later I went out for the third time and a very well defined ellipse appeared. My third and the best ellipse I have observed. What a joyous day!
