At noon on May 29, there appears a solar halo view for about one hour in Ruili city, Yunnan province on the China-Burma border. Solar halo is an atmospheric optical phenomenon caused by refraction of sunlight by tiny ice crystals in clouds. In folk culture, people believe if a solar halo view appears in day, rain will come at night. So we can regard solar halo as a basis of the weather changes.
