A white halo passed through brilliant sundogs on both sides of the sun, and then extended and converged entirely around the horizon. An additional rainbow-colored, sun-centered halo was visible just inside the sundogs. Two rainbow-colored arcs are visible below and above the circumzenith halo. Neither of these arcs are centered on either the sun, the anti-solar point, nor the zenith.

A lot of rare phenomena here. The bright white circle is a parhelic circle, not a circumhorizon arc.
