Brief Directions

Wakosim's Reseve is on Martha's Vineyard Island on North Road just over the Chilmark town line.

Description

I was hiking at Wakosim's Rock Reserve as the sun was going down. Suddenly a circle appeared around the sun. These rings are caused by ice crystals within thin cirrus clouds, and there several different kinds of sun rings you can see depending on the weather conditions.
