MullaghmoreIt’s going to be “pumping”.

Surfworld Bundoran writes:

“Big swell coming for Ireland’s western and NW sea board over the coming weekend and into next week. Here is a shot of Mullaghmore from last year [above] to wet your appetite. The Forecast for swell looks mental. A few normal days of good swell in store before all hell breaks loose …Tomorrow (Thursday) will be nice clean offshore 4 ft…. Friday 3-4 ft and offshore…. Saturday 4-5 ft and offshore…. Sunday will be in the 20-25 ft range [top], Monday 10-15 ft, Tuesday 10 ft, wind will be factor on the big days with WSW wind, but if you know where to go it will be absolutely pumping!”

The ring is caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in the clouds and projecting elsewhere into the sky. And, at a certain angle (22 degrees), the halo appears.

Crystals, dude.
