ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – Not even a special-looking sun could bring a great deal of warmth to the St. Louis area Monday.

A pretty impressive halo has been ringing around sun today. We know full well, though, it's got nothing to do with Mother Nature's good mood since she's been giving us the cold shoulder quite a bit lately.

But cold does have something to do with it.

The halo is a result of sunlight passing through the cirrus clouds high above us, which are composed entirely of ice crystals. Those ice crystals break the sun's rays down into a lovely crown around the sun.

Several people on Facebook and Twitter reached out to us with their photos and questions about today's sun.
