Spectacular pictures show motocross racers jumping high in front of a rare solar halo, which occurred last weekend at an event in Bintan, Indonesia. The phenomenon is thought to be caused by ice crystals in cirrus clouds high in the Earth's atmosphere causing an optical effect when combined with the power of the Sun millions of miles away. It results in rings of light appearing around the Sun as particles of water vapour catch the Sun's rays. (Photo by Yuli Seperi / Barcroft Media / Getty Images)
