Rainbow Sun

Did anyone see the sun today? I captured these pictures at around 1.30 to 2 pm today, 17th June 09. You see, I was playing tennis by myself, you know, hitting the ball on the wall as I have always done when I have nothing better to do and to lose a bit of weight. I wanted to practice my serve, so I threw the ball up, and as I was about to hit the ball with my trusty racquet, I noticed something peculiar about the sun. Then I saw the rainbow.








I wonder what this means. Is it a natural phenomenon that happens often? Or is it a sign of something to come? I heard my Filipino pastor in Banting say that in the Philippines, this was a sign of an incoming typhoon. But not in Malaysia, I hope not. Hmmm... Anyway I hope my eyes don't get damaged for staring at the sun for quite a substantial amount of time...
