Stratus Clouds, Greenland (photo by Bryan and Cherry Alexander). Eight hundred miles south of the North Pole, stalactite-like stratus clouds - churned by winds - and the light of a bruised dawn paint an apocalyptic portrait over Inglefield Bay.
This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a ‘SKY PUNCH’. When people see these,they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds,then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloudcover.
A halo develops when light enters one side of a columnar ice crystal and exits through another side. The light is refracted when it enters the ice crystal and once again when it leaves the ice crystal.

Stratus Clouds: Stratus clouds are uniform grayish clouds that often cover the entire sky. They resemble fog that does not reach the ground. Usually no precipitation falls from stratus clouds, but sometimes they may drizzle. When a thick fog "lifts," the resulting clouds are low stratus.
