Persona Merge
Italy, on Sep 15, 2003

Ciao Nancy, taken this afternoon at 6:10 PM and 6:30 PM.
These personas do not appear to be lens flares, with the one exception a flare past the White Persona. They do not all line up from the center of the Sun as flares do. They differ in appearance and size and color. All but the White Persona are composed of bending red light that focuses depending upon many factors, including location and time of day. In the Aug 24 Ohio Lotus Flower crop circle, these personas appear to line up as they are tend to do in these photos.
