Bishop's ring, noon
Study of a lighting effect caused by atmospheric dust and gases ejected by the 1883 volcanic eruption on the island of Krakatoa (Krakatau, Indonesia). The Bishop’s Ring effect, of a diffuse halo around the solar disc, was named after its first observer, Sereno Edwards Bishop (1827-1909).
Plate 2 from the book Untersuchungen uber Dämmerungserscheinungen zur Erklarung der nach dem Krakatau-ausbruch beobachteten atmospharisch-optischen Storung, by J. Kiessling (Hamburg, Leopold Voss, 1888).
