Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) — There took place a wonder in the sky over the secret camp in Mt. Paektu at a time when all the servicepersons and people of the DPRK are celebrating the 13th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s election as chairman of the National Defence Commission with splendor.
There appeared in the sky a double solar halo reminiscent of a rainbow at 7:00 a.m. on April 6, a rare phenomenon.
That day the temperature in the area covered with 75 cm of snow registered 11.2 deg. below zero or 1.5 deg. higher than that of last year.
Snow was seen flying dazzlingly in the area when the sun rose from the eastern sky clad in thin clouds in the early morning. It was against this background that a big and bright double solar halo, not yet in full round shape, appeared in the sky over the camp at the foot of Jong Il Peak.
This spectacular scenery lasted for 40 minutes.
The officials of the meteorological station at the camp in Mt. Paektu said that it was a very rare natural phenomenon, the first of its kind in the history of meteorological observation in the area.
Officials and other working people were very pleased to say that the double solar halo that appeared in the sky over the holy land of the Korean revolution in the run-up to the April auspicious jubilee reflects the warm congratulations the servicepersons and people are offering to Kim Jong Il.
