Halo around the Sun

The other day I saw a halo around the sun. I can’t explain it, but I want to share this in case other folks have seen this.

The photo was taken near San Francisco, California, on March 6 at 1:06 pm. I decreased the exposure by one stop in Lightroom to make it easier to see the halo. No other changes made.
