Scientists believe these multiple ice halos – floating in the sky from New England to Alabama – were caused by Sandy’s outer bands passing over the area and leaving behind a thin layer of ice crystals in the cirrus clouds.

Spaceweather writes the extremely rare apparition was “almost certainly connected to Hurricane Sandy”:
