Caption: Solar corona. Multicoloured corona around the sun, seen through altocumulus clouds. A corona is the diffraction of light as it passes through water droplets in clouds, similar in formation to a rainbow. Altocumulus clouds are medium-level clouds found at 2000 to 7000 metres. The size and regularity of the water droplets dictates the size and colour of the corona.
