I just walked outside and spotted the bottom of the arc. I thought it looked like oddly symetrical clouds, so I looked more toward the Sun and realized the Sun was encircled by a halo. I decide to risk my eyesight by briefly glancing though the viewfinder to take this shot.
It's not cropped. My 17-40L was JUST wide enough to capture the whole thing.
Sorry the center is a bit blown out... :-)

Thanks freidaw,

I am somewhat surprised there have been no other comments on this photo, unless everyone thinks this it's some sort of lens abberation instead of an atmospheric phenomenon...

Thanks for the link, but it was broken... Here's a fixed one.
