Did you see the ring around the sun?

If you were outside today, you may have noticed a giant ring around the sun. That ring is actually the reflection of ice crystals from high cirrus clouds, according to EarthSky.org

The ring was seen all over the area by News10 viewers, including Roseville and Stockton. Did you get a chance to see it?

Central Valley dairy farmers are keeping a close eye on the “epic” drought in the Midwest that is killing off crops and driving corn prices up in a spiral that will eventually affect every consumer.

Corn is the major component for feed for most cattle. Rolled corn was selling for $265 a ton on June 18, but by July 23 it was selling for $365 a ton, said Stan Fail, dairy sales director of Associated Feed and Supply in Turlock.
