We get the same effect here, sometimes daily due to um... "persistent contrails". The sky turns milky. Sun light is reflected and, to a degree refraction takes place causing that effect.
On the other hand there was cold air aloft moving in from the north, classic ice crystal sun dogs can form under such conditions.

A perfectly natural phenomenon but very beautiful and that one is very rare. So no, it's not Yahweh's chariots this time either.

Here is a 50 page halo thread on the Finnish Astronomical Association forum:
