Corona / "Solar Crown"

I was walking through the city one cold morning, when I saw this huge solar crown in the sky. In this picture, you can see up to three rings at the same time, forming a beautiful set. Strongly coloured rings are visible around the sun, they are half-hidden by a veil of cirrocumulus clouds. The crowns are formed by diffraction of light on water droplets or ice crystals in clouds.
