Abstract

When seen in divergent light, atmospheric optical phenomena could appear to be modified. We describe some geometric and retroreflectional effects of light divergence on <i>heiligenschein</i> and related phenomena that, to our knowledge, have not been previously reported. These geometric effects are compared with and set in relation to the geometric effects on other atmospheric optical phenomena.
