A Brocken spectre or mountain spectre, is the ap­par­ent­ly enormous and mag­ni­fied shadow of an ob­server, cast upon the surfaces of clouds opposite the sun. The head of the figure is often sur­round­ed by the glowing halo-­like rings of a glo­ry—rings of coloured light that appear directly opposite the sun when sunlight meets a cloud of uni­form­ly-­sized water droplet­s. The phe­nom­e­non can appear on any misty moun­tain­side or cloud bank.
