Halos are formed when light refracts in ice crystals in cirrus clouds.

Rainbows form when light is refracted (or bent) through raindrops. The interior of the rainbow is bright, whereas the outside of the main rainbow is dark.

Sunsets are stunning because of the way the low sunlight is scattered through the thicker lower atmosphere. As white sunlight shines, the purples, blues and greens are scattered away, leaving more reds to light up the sky.

Auroras occur when highly charged particles from the sun interact with the air molecules at the top of our atmosphere.
