Monster Sun
Britain, on Apr 27, 2004

The Guardian newspaper today showed a big photo (half the length of the page) on page 8 today of the take-off of the first round the world gyroplane attempt and right there above it was the sun in a clear blue sky: occulted, with horizontal cross flares and a massive orange orb at one o`clock. Also with some lens flares there too. I looked around and managed to find the exact photo from the Reuters news site. It was taken in Hampshire, UK.
