The Astronomical Association Ursa has awarded its Stella Arcti prize to nature photographer Antti Henriksson and amateur stargazer Marko Mikkilä for discovering two previously unknown forms of astronomical halos.

According to the Ursa Association, the halos discovered and captured by Henriksson and Mikkilä were not even recognized as a theoretical possibility before this discovery. They were sighted and photographed at Nivala, in Northern Ostrobothnia, last July.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.
