120 degree parhelion & Parhelic circle
I got to see a 120 degree parhelion today. It was the only halo in the sky at the moment, so you should always look all around the sky! Later I saw a parhelic circle segment. There was a mixture of natural cirri and contrails, a sundog showed up in the contrails, but it was not a good one. Contrails just never seem to have those good orientations!

Faint parhelic circle, its in the middle of the image.
Update: Later in the evening there was a faint circumzenith arc and a bright sundog. The sundog was hard to photograph, a lot of trees around here!
