Atmospheric optical phenomena are visual events that take place in Earth's atmosphere as a consequence of the way light is reflected, refracted, and diffracted by solid particles, liquids droplets, and other materials present in the atmosphere. Such phenomena include a wide variety of events ranging from the blue color of the sky itself to mirages and rainbows to sundogs and solar pillars.
