Had this not been presented as optical illusion the "meter" would have said 101% paranormal .000% anything else.

Best picture of a Broken Spectre I've seen. Very impressive projection from Snowdonia, Wales.

I've seen that in Colorado.  It's caused by the observer's shadow on moisture droplets in the atmosphere.  The halo is created by the slightly-different perspective that each droplet has to the observer and the sun, much like a rainbow.

Next time you're outside on a humid day, turn your back to the sun and see what you can see.  (Helps if you're up on a hill.).
