Stars communication: Our sun tries to interact with the Arctura Water Tank by sending a solar halo

This is a beautiful photograph of a solar halo over a building named for a star. I am sure they had an interesting discussion!

Astrophotographer Göran Strand shot this amazing picture of a building – hotwater storage tank in Östersund, Sweden – named Arctura (named after the star Arcturus in the constellation Bootes) and our sun forming a halo around… As if our star was trying to communicate with it… The solar halo is very intense and envelops the 65 meters high and 27 meters wide building. Imagine sitting at the restaurant at the top of Arctura during this exact moment. Beautiful!
