Cambridge Bay, Nunavut - November 2006 - a classic arctic halo caused by the sunlight refracting on ice crystals
in the air - taken as the sun was setting at 3:15 p.m. Note the reflection of the sun on the icy road in the foreground.

The view down Omingmak street - taken at 10:30 a.m. The little Anglican church is in the centre and in the
 background (actually across a bay in the ocean) the Loran Tower which was built after WW II as part of the
navigational system for the North. (The official definition : Loran is short for a long-range navigational system
 in which position is determined by an analysis involving the time intervals between pulsed radio signals
 from two or more pairs of ground stations of known position.)
