Singaporeans were amazed to see a gorgeous sun halo in the sky on Tuesday (Sep 22).

Halos around the sun are caused by high, thin cirrus clouds drifting in the sky above your head.

The sun halo can be seen because the thin clouds are so high in the sky that they are made of ice crystals instead of water droplets.

Several Stompers managed to capture photos and videos of this optical phenomenon that was spotted from various locations in Singapore.

Stomper Pallavi took a photo of the sun halo from Water Place condominium at 12.19pm and shared that this was her first time seeing a sun halo.

"I have heard about this phenomenon before, but this is my first time seeing this wonderful phenomenon in real life," Pallavi shared.

"The sun was a bit too bright, but it was such an amazing sight.

"I am lucky to see a sun halo on my birthday week."

Stomper Anonymous also shared photos that she took of the halo.
