"People are more used to seeing men who are masters at an instrument than women. When people say, ‘Oh, she plays like a dude,’ it’s usually dudes who are the ones saying it. They’re saying, ‘Oh, she’s as good as us.’ Of course, that’s a stupid statement. It’s totally stereotypical to say, ‘We have an advantage on this, and if anyone else can do it well, it’s only because they’re like us.’ I think more men are starting to learn that this attitude is totally hollow and based in imagination. As more women are involved in music, this kind of thing gets said less and less."

Sun Halo With Parhelic Circle by Levin Dieterle

Halos around the sun or moon happen when high, thin cirrus clouds are drifting high above your head. Tiny ice crystals in Earth’s atmosphere cause the halos. They do this by refracting and reflecting the light. Lunar halos are signs that storms are nearby. [Earthsky]

A parhelic circle is a halo, an optical phenomenon appearing as a horizontal white line on the same altitude as the sun, or occasionally the Moon. If complete, it stretches all around the sky, but more commonly it only appears in sections. [**]
