Factory Glory

Look for glories everywhere. This one was seen by Harry Mulder in steam from a milk processing factory in The Netherlands.

The recipe for a glory is cloud, mist, fog or other water droplets lit by direct sunlight. The ringed glory is always directly opposite the sun.

Aircraft, hill and mountain slopes, over a ship's rail in sea fog are usual places but there must be many more.
